Using literacy kits, created by Sound Reading Solutions and donated by Costco, we can work closely with the children and discover where there needs are and overcome them.

Position Description: Volunteers will be placed one-on-one with a child or in a small group where they will complete literacy activities and read books while building a responsive relationship with a caring adult.

Requirements: Background Check, Once a week for 1 hour*; 2 sessions available: Sept-Dec and Jan-May
