We are partnering with the United Way Read to Succeed program, providing 25 volunteers each for 2 Elementary Schools in Macon, GA to worik with 25 youth in each school, encouraging reading and promoting reading on grade level by third grade. Volunteers will be screened and trained, and will work with Kindergarten through 2nd grade students on a one on one basis for at least one hour per week during the school year. We ask our volunteers to commit to working with a child for one school year, helping that child improve their reading skills and providing the support and encouragement every child needs to succeed.
