The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
We invite community members to volunteer in a classroom for one hour each week during the school year at one of the 20 elementary schools. This is a significant commitment, but your time and effort will make a difference. Our schools are already seeing results, and Read to Succeed is a part of improving student achievement. Our three local school corporations have reported increase in the number of students who passed the IREAD-3 test, which is Indiana's state assessment of reading ability in third grade, improved attendance as well as less disciplinary issues since the inception in 2011. *Volunteers MUST pass a background check and be over the age of 18.
