Children Tutoring Program


IECC connects young people with learning disabilities with other community services to help them work better in school through our tutoring program. Children from poor and low-income families do not have the money to pay for tutoring fees and face learning difficulties in certain subjects and sometimes end up dropping out of school at an earlier age. Our experienced and qualified volunteers also help struggling children with math, French, science, reading, computers and music. This service is offered free of charge to all community members at the IECC community center and by video conference because of COVID-19. This program is offered free of charge only to social assistance recipients, people with disabilities and newcomers to Canada in both languages ​​English and French.

IECC's Youth Mentorship Program connects high school students experiencing low self-esteem with mentors, industry leaders, business leaders and successful entrepreneurs to guide them through their careers, to strengthen their capacities, employability, entrepreneurship and leadership skills, as well as help them restore self-esteem and confidence. We are working closely with schools and community partners to offer this program free of charge to 13-18 year olds across Nova Scotia, New Brunswick and Ontario. This program is offered free of charge only to social assistance recipients, people with disabilities and newcomers to Canada in both languages ​​English and French.
