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.
