About Older Teachers Teaching Early Readers, a Program of Volunteers for Community Impact
3545 Lake Breeze Drive, Orlando, FL 32808, US
The mission of Volunteers for Community Impact is to improve lives through volunteerism.
The OTTER Program was created in 2004 as a VCI demonstration project and is now being refined and re-envisioned for the 2020-21 school year to include both virtual and face-to-face modalities. By reading aloud and engaging young children in literacy activities, OTTER volunteers help children develop vocabulary, increase reading comprehension, and develop a lifelong love for reading. OTTER volunteers include Foster Grandparents, RSVP, and community volunteers ages 18 and up.
