Reading Coaches for Kids

  • 65 people are interested

It only takes an hour a week to make a difference to a child.

Research shows that third graders who have proficient reading skills are nearly five times more likely to graduate high school than their peers who do not; yet in many of our area schools, over 70% of third graders test below proficient for on-track readiness in English Language Arts.

Reading Coaches for Kids is a volunteer tutoring program designed to increase students' reading abilities and academic success. Dedicated, caring volunteers provide consistency and educational support by reading individually with students. This is done during the school day in K-5 classrooms or after school programs throughout Brown County, helping them improve their reading skills.

Reading Coaches will be in person for the 2021-22 school year (though with the unpredictability or Covid status, this can always change). Masks are required for all students, staff and visitors in all Green Bay district buildings. Other area districts have an optional mask policy.

*Note - Due to funding requirements, senior volunteers(55+) must reside in Brown County, Wisconsin.
