WE NEED YOU!!
Tuesday, August 07, 2012
Check out our Readers and Leaders tutorial program.

We have a wonderful opportunity for you to volunteer!! Please come aboard as a reading buddy in the Readers and Leaders tutorial program. You will make a significant impact in the lives of our students. We hope that you will join us as we all work together to support our children and build a strong community. All it takes is a 30 minute block of time each week, a love of books and children and we will do the rest. Volunteers are given a training session before being matched with a student. References will be checked and background screening must also occur before a volunteer can begin.

 

Research supports the value of programs such as Readers and Leaders due to the increased confidence that students receive by having a caring adult spend consistent time with them. Coupling this experience with quality learning activities increases the value of such contact exponentially.
