The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
Spend some quality time reading with a child. Did you know that 80% of low-income fourth graders are not reading proficiently? You can help by volunteering to read with a child one hour a week.
HIKE Reading Coaches spend one-on-one time with youth in low-income housing communities reading, playing games, and teaching new literacy skills. The reading sessions are relaxed and fun. By working together, you can help give a child the vital skills they need to read, grow, and succeed. We preapre the lesson plan and activties. You just come build confidence, encourage, and have fun!
Our Reading Labs take place within the low-income housing communities we serve. Reading Coach shifts run between 4:30pm-6:30pm Mondays through Thursdays. Can’t make it for the full two hours? No worries - whether you can come for an hour or two, your help is greatly needed and appreciated!
You can be the adult who makes a difference in a child’s life. Email April at email@example.com to get involved.
