About

We mobilize community volunteers to spend at least 1 hour per week (two students/30 minutes ea.) reading with a child in our reading centers located at various local elementary school campuses in Chico and (newly) Paradise CA. You get to pick the school, time, and day of your volunteering experience. We use a proven literacy curriculum and easy to follow "lesson-plan" during our sessions where you will work 1-on-1 with a student between grades 2-4. Our data this year has shown that students enrolled with us improve by 1 year worth of literacy skills in just the first 5 months of the program. Together we can build bright futures for these amazing kids.
