We’ve heard from teachers, parents, and kids time and again that a warm, happy environment makes it easier to crack open a book when reading starts to seem intimidating. Give students an extra incentive to lose themselves in a good story by helping us put together family reading kits-each filled with a book and a sensory tool-that we’ll distribute at school and community events. Volunteers will be assembling about a 100 kits.

Volunteers may also inventory reading kit items.

This is an ongoing opportunity. Please email serve@shadow-project.org if you are interested in learning more!

Accessibility information: Volunteers will be seated and there is no lifting involved. There is one designated accessible parking spot and lots of front row parking spaces. The ramp is directly to the right of the accessible parking.

About The Shadow Project

Location:

2154 NE Broadway, Suite 130, Portland, OR 97232, US

Mission Statement

The Shadow Project's mission is to make school more accessible and engaging for children with learning challenges, so they can achieve their full potential. We partner with teachers at schools across the Portland Metro, McMinnville and Salem, OR to improve educational outcomes for students with learning challenges like dyslexia, ADHD, and autism. Most of our students are from communities of color, low-income backgrounds, and are English Language Learners. Since 2003, The Shadow Project has supported students to be confident, engaged learners who thrive in school and life. Check out this video created by one of our interns from Portland State University, about their experience: https://youtu.be/aizo8gC2Abw

Description

Founded by a Portland mom whose dyslexic son was ready to give up on school in second grade, The Shadow Project has helped foster success for children in grades pre-K to eight whose special education needs include dyslexia, ADHD, autism, and speech/language and sensory disorders. With the conviction that all students can graduate from high school given access to the right supports, the nonprofit Shadow Project provides innovative tools and techniques tailored to diverse learners and supports teachers in integrating those tools into their classrooms.
