PCAT is an after-school literacy program for primary grade students (ages 5 & 6) that are at-risk of school failure.
Volunteer mentors attend the program at least two days per week for at least one hour during after school hours. Students served are in kindergarten or first grade and have been referred by their teacher because they are not reading at grade level.
Volunteers provide one-on-one intensive reading instruction which has been proven to be effective in improving reading achievement. Educational workbooks, readers, and educational games are utilized by the volunteers according to individualized plans developed to address each child's needs. Test scores have demonstrated significant progress in reading by students who complete the program, and almost all students are promoted to the next grade. Volunteers work under staff supervision.
No additional volunteer opportunities at this time.
