Imagine you are in fifth grade and still reading at the level of a third-grade student. Think how difficult school would be and how you might come to dread even going. Our students need your help!
Volunteers are needed to help struggling readers at Central Middle School in a new Tiger Book Club on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 2:20-3:10 to lead a book club of 4-5 students in fifth and sixth grades. We also need Read to Succeed volunteers at various elementary schools in morning and early afternoon time slots Monday through Friday.
"I like how [volunteers] can come and sit and read with us. I'm learning to be brave about reading in front of people and to never give up." - J.H., 5th Grader
The benefits of volunteering to read with a student are many. The relationship formed with the students is extremely important to their overall development and level of self-confidence. Volunteers experience a high degree of satisfaction knowing they are making a difference.
Sign up for as many R2S sessions as you like by contacting Robin Koetting, Program Manager, at 334-9634 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Volunteer at the middle school by contacting email@example.com or 334-6281. Background checks will be required.
