Are you passionate about literacy? Do you enjoy working with kids?

Support Boys and Girls Clubs of the Peninsula by joining Boys and Girls Clubs of the Peninsula as a Book Nook tutor! Book Nook is a 1-on-1 guided reading program for students to enhance and elevate their reading achievement. This pilot program utilizes technology, standards-based curriculum, structured reading activities, and importantly a highly engaged face-to-face learning with adult mentors to support students in underserved communities. BGCP and Book Nook will launch this joint-initiative with a cohort of students reading at the targeted level beginning in January 2017. Additional training provided.

This opportunity is part of our new Book Nook pilot program, and targets students who are reading at a 3rd grade level.
