A nod to LeVar Burton

This year, I am taking part in a reading program for children; I have decided to lend my voice to the summer Reading Tents.

The Reading Tents is the only Frontier College program running during the summer. Basically, we go in day camps and festivals in the poorest neighbourhoods of Montreal to read to children who are approximately from 2 to 12 years old. We set up a tent and carry along a big trunk of books to these events. We accept book donations!

For more information or to volunteer with Frontier College in Montreal, please call 514-528-1001 or email montreal@collegefrontiere.ca
