Read with Me!

School Volunteer Program - VOLUNTEERS NEEDED FOR 2019/2020 SCHOOL YEAR!

Designed to improve students’ reading and comprehension skills, this program connects volunteers with students who need a little extra help. Volunteers are recruited throughout the community including individuals from the Senior Center, College of the Canyons and other local organizations. Our volunteers work 1-2 hours a week working either one-on-one or in small group settings.  Our “Literacy Friends” will read with or be read to, assist with pronunciation, comprehension and provide positive feedback. Volunteers are assigned to a specific school and one class for the duration of the school year – they become part of the classroom family.

Bag of Books

Designed to improve literacy skills and encourage reading, Bag of Books allows children who have little or no access to books outside school to take home a set of books to read on their own and with family members. At the beginning of the week, each student signs out a bag containing four grade-level books. The bag is returned to the class on Friday. Bags will equal the number of students in the class and contain different titles in each bag.

For the above programs, we work closely with local schools and districts to identify students and families that would most benefit from Bag of Books and specialized tutoring.
