About

The "Polk People Read" program at Crystal Lake Elementary in Lakeland is seeking adult men and women who would be willing to visit once a week during their lunch hour, to help read to a 4th or 5th grade student and allow the students to read to the adults. The school Media Specialist will provide a chapter-book (book containing multiple chapters) to be read. (Some companies allow their employees paid time to volunteer in schools - check with your company.)

Gain satisfaction in knowing that you have helped to increase a child’s self-confidence & knowledge to put him/her on a path to a brighter future! School invites Readers to join them annually for a volunteer appreciation event.

If you are not already an approved Polk County School Volunteer (from any Polk school), the school will instruct you on completing their volunteer application and paying a $25 Background Screen fee (good for up to 3 years and is cheaper than the $75 fee commonly charged for other programs.)
