Educational Support

At Neighbour to Neighbour we believe that education is the key to eliminating poverty. Literacy and numeracy are both fundamental skills essential to student’s success.

We work to help children and their families by providing educational supports in local schools and community facilities. We offer both Literacy and Math tutoring to assist students in building the skills they need to succeed.



Deban Brunette Literacy Program

The N2N Deban Brunette Literacy Program has been providing Literacy support to local schools for over 15 years, providing trained volunteers to support children in Grades 1-4 with improving their literacy skills.
Children get 1 on 1 interaction, twice a week, which helps to build their comprehension, fluency and self-confidence.

This program is offered in 15 Hamilton schools and students are referred to the program through their school.

After School Math Success Program

The N2N Math Success Program provides students in grades 7 and 8 with the opportunity to work with trained volunteers, once or twice per week, to improve their math skills.

We are currently offering our Math Success program in 4 locations across the city.
