On Your Mark

On Your Mark is a free community-based tutoring and mentoring program for children of Portuguese and Spanish-speaking descent. Students who are struggling in school are matched up with a volunteer tutor dedicated to working with them one-on-one or in small groups for up to 2 hours a week. The program is run in a number of schools across the Toronto District School Board, Toronto Catholic District School Board, and the Dufferin-Peel District School Board on mostly weekdays and Saturdays.
