Volunteer to Read to a Child
 
Help ENC Launch our Reading Mentor Program:
READ CONNECT JEFFCO (RCJ)
 

READ Connect Jeffco (RCJ) is a nonprofit organization (through ENC) that will create shared reading experiences in preschools and kindergarten programs during the 2016 school year. 
 
The goal of READ Connect Jeffco is to provide students with volunteer adult readers.  Reading with a caring volunteer promotes the joy of learning and greater self-esteem in young children.  Learning to love reading at an early age correlates with greater achievement in school, even years later! 
 
Volunteer now to read to a child!
 
PROVEN RESULTS
 
Washington DC's  Everybody Wins found that students who are read to during lunch are twice as likely to improve their school performance as kids who aren't read to, and their teachers report that the kids who are read to take more books home, volunteer to read more in class, and are more likely to say they enjoy reading. Results like these come because of the special relationship between mentors and the children they read to. More than just "reading buddies," the adult volunteers also serve as role models, and report overwhelmingly positive feelings about their experience reading with the children.
 
Now ENC is bringing a reading mentor program to Jeffco,  and you can help!
 
Just a few hours a month at lunch time or story time can change a child's life.  Volunteer as a mentor, donate to the RCJ program, or get your business involved as a partner. There are lots of ways to help.
