Reading Mentor - Saint Paul Public Library
22 people are interested
Volunteers meet one-on-one with a student in grades 1-5 for one hour per week for one school year. The goals are to help boost reading skills, foster an enjoyment in reading, and create a positive mentoring relationship. As a literacy tutor, you will develop rapport with the student and support their individual growth and engage with literacy activities and games. Tutors must be proficient in reading and writing. Most of the students come from families who speak English as a Second Language and are underperforming in reading tests at school.
Volunteers communicate to the Reading Together Coordinator (Sam) your available hours and desired library location, and you will be paired with a student who has the same availability. This program allows for volunteers to see students' growth over the school year and communicate progress to parents and the Reading Together program.
The Volunteer Opportunity may be at any of our locations, see more here:
We'll work with your schedule.
