CRAFTS: Crafting for Literacy

Save to Favorites

Words Alive



Words Alive is looking for volunteers to help prepare craft materials for their Family Literacy program. The Family Literacy program supports low-income and under-served families by providing tips and tricks to make reading a fun, family activity while highlighting the importance of early literacy development. As part of the program participants read a new book each week and then complete an activity or craft relating to the book they just read. These craft activities will be used for distance-learning programming and will help Words Alive reach an additional 500 families. All skill levels are welcome!

To ensure families can complete the activities in a timely manner, volunteers are needed to help prepare the crafts and activities beforehand. Volunteer duties include cutting out pictures, gluing papers together, sorting pre-cut images, tying yarn, packing paper bags, etc.

Attire: Closed-toe shoes are required. Wearing comfortable clothing is recommended. The office gets chilly so bringing a sweater is recommended.

Physical Ability: Volunteers should be comfortable holding and using pens, markers, scissors, etc. Words Alive's office is not wheelchair accessible. Alternative accommodations requests can be directed to robyn@wordsalive.org.

Safety: Masks worn over the nose and mouth are mandatory while inside the Words Alive office or warehouse.
