The Davis County Retired & Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP) needs volunteers age 55+ to help make a difference in the lives of children struggling to read at grade level. The Utah State Board of Education (USBE) reported that 31% of 1st - 3rd Graders were reading below grade level in the middle of the 2019-20 school year. The USBE report also states that students who receive extra help with reading are more likely to read at their grade level by the end of the school year. By volunteering for as little as 1 hour, 1-2 days a week, you could help a child succeed!
Volunteers are needed in Elementary schools throughout Davis County. Reading programs start at the end of August or the first of September and run through April. For more information, contact Jennifer Chaffee with Davis County RSVP at 801-525-5094 or firstname.lastname@example.org

Davis County RSVP empowers and enables Americans 55+ in addressing community needs and concerns through volunteering.
Americans 55+ have a lifetime of experience to share and the desire to make a real difference in their world. Members of this mature generation have managed households, been business owners and nurses, farmers and salespeople, artists and executives. Now they are ready to put their unique talents and expertise to work in their communities, and enrich their own lives in the process.
RSVP is the connection to aid volunteers in choosing how and where to serve, time of service, causes to support, and how to get started. RSVP provides pre-service orientation, training from the organization where service is given, supplemental insurance while on duty, and, in some cases, a mileage reimbursement to cover the cost of travel between home and the volunteer site.
When you volunteer, you're not just helping others - you're helping yourself. Volunteering leads to new discoveries and new friends. Plus, studies show that volunteering helps you live longer and promotes a positive outlook on life.
