CAN connects passionate volunteers with students to build academic success and confidence.
Read to Succeed Volunteers assist elementary school teachers for 1-2 hours a week during the school day with literacy-based activities. Volunteers will assist the classroom teacher with a variety of activities. Read to Succeed Volunteers might:
-Read with students
-Practice sight word memorization
-Partner with students as they learn the writing process, or
-Help students practice and understand the components of storytelling
Volunteers must be at least 16 years old, complete a volunteer application, background check (if 18+), and online training.
To have enough time to build meaningful relationships with CAN’s children and youth, volunteers commit to serve at least one day a week for six weeks, or ~12 hours minimum. A volunteer may choose any 1-2 hour time slot (min.) between 9am-3pm, Monday-Friday.
You can make a difference! Because of committed and caring volunteers like you, 97% of CAN’s students graduate from high school , which is 27% more than their non-CAN socioeconomic peers (2016).
