Learning Home Volunteers

  • 3 people are interested

We are expanding our community outreach and need a master sleuth with mad Google search skills. We are in search for organizations that we can collaborate with to get our organization's services and mission known.

Did you know the #1 indicator of future academic success is kindergarten readiness? Did you know that children from low-income families are 2x more likely to enter kindergarten unprepared? Learning Home Volunteers is working to change that. We want each child to get an equal start at school.

Our master sleuth would help us identify contacts at organizations that:
  • Serve the same community we do and would be in contact with those that would want our help
  • Believe in social justice and would provide support for our mission
  • Want to create a better community through helping all in the community
  • Are faith organizations
  • Are day care centers or preschool organizations
Our sleuth would also help identify individuals who:
  • Serve the same community we do and would be in contact with those that would want our help
  • Could provide financial support, or support through a gift of their time
We will provide training on the kind of information we are looking for and how we can identify those that are a good match for our organization.

Can you help us?

Mission Statement

Prepare under-served children, ages 3 to 5, and their families for kindergarten through the excitement of learning, in-home tutoring and support.

Description

20% of the nation's children live in poverty. This effects their educational outcomes. 49% of them enter school unprepared. 50% will read at below grade level throughout their schooling. 30% will eventually drop out of high school. In our community the situation is even worse: 80% enter school unprepared and 73% are reading below grade level at 3rd grade. After 3rd grade, all learning is book based making it difficult to keep up if you can't read well.

Together can change these outcomes. You can help. Research shows that play is how children learn best. Child directed play paired with quality conversation, increase vocabulary and reading will allow them to enter school at parity.

Both the parent and volunteer attend the same training. You will learn about:

  • our highly effective child direct play learning methodology
  • the exciting developmental changes that the child will go through during ages 3 to 5
  • how to deepen the play with vocabulary, conversation, academic concepts (letters, numbers, colors, and shapes)

Meet with child in their home for an hour each week. The child will choose from the items you bring from our lending library of learning activities. The children love their lessons. Be a part of changing a child's life. Volunteer with Learning Home Volunteers.
