Volunteer with Telling Tales

Join us as we knock down barriers to literacy, inspire a spark of creativity and foster a love of reading in hundreds of children in our community. Volunteer for a few hours, a few days, or all year round. Meet Canada’s best known children’s storytellers and make lifelong friends along the way.


This year, Telling Tales has gone virtual and we will be hosting our beloved Telling Tales Festival online! You’ll still get to see all of your favourite Canadian children’s storytellers through a variety of online presentations and workshops. Even though we can’t be together in person this fall, we still need your help to bring the 2020 Telling Tales Virtual Festival to life. Sign up below to become a Virtual Volunteer.
