We make academic support accessible through the proven peer-tutoring model
L2L is the International Development and Relief Foundation’s Canadian education program. Since 2002, we have supported over 40,000 students across the country to improve their grades and develop leadership skills through our free peer-tutoring programs. We train and certify high-achieving students to volunteer as tutors, who mentor their peers struggling in school.
Tutors run one-on-one tutoring sessions on a broad range of subjects including math, English, and science. By making peer tutoring accessible, we eliminate educational disparities, and ensure students can get the academic support they need to succeed in school, graduate, and achieve their full potential.
Why Join L2L?
In 2022-23, over 80% of L2L Peers noted improvements in their grades, and 80% of L2L Tutors reported that participating in the program helped them improve their leadership capabilities.
In addition to providing individualized academic support, L2L Tutors become mentors, and friends to the students they support.
The L2L Program offers many benefits to Tutors and Peers. The number one reason students join the program is to help others!
