  • A group opportunity. Invite your friends.
  • 7 people are interested

  • Volunteers for Read With Kids serve as a reading mentor for elementary students in the Ypsilanti community. They work with small groups of 1-3 Kindergarten or First Grade students to introduce them to books, share in a positive reading experience, and engage in fun reading activities.
  • Read With Kids is an in-person program, working directly in the school the children attend.
  • Currently, opportunities for volunteers include sessions on Mondays, Tuesdays, and/or Wednesdays from 7:30-8:30 for Kindergarten, and Thursdays and/or Fridays 7:30-8:30 for First Grade. Volunteers are required to sign up for at least one of these session days, but may choose more if desired.
  • On-site training will be provided for all volunteers starting in January.
  • As this is an in-person volunteering experience, volunteers are expected to follow all safety guidelines and COVID-19 procedures in the school, including wearing masks, if necessary.

About Children's Literacy Network

Location:

1100 N Main St, Suite 207, ANN ARBOR, MI 48104, US

Mission Statement

Growing Readers for Life! Children’s Literacy Network’s mission is to design and implement literacy-based programs to provide equitable opportunities for children to develop a love of reading and books. We are a volunteer-based nonprofit agency established in 1991, dedicated to closing the book and reading achievement gap to keep low-income students from falling further behind their more affluent peers. Children's Literacy Network (CLN) accomplishes this goal through innovative programming at the early childhood and school-age levels.

Description

For 31 years CLN has provided literacy programs to 400,000 young readers in Washtenaw County, distributing more than a million dollars in new high-quality books to low-income children, creating home libraries for families who need them most. CLN’s current continuum of services and the growth in scope and programming could not have been foreseen by CLN’s founders. Nevertheless, the original goals of the organization remain the same. CLN’s services are useful and empowering for parents, and critical to narrowing the achievement gap between students of different neighborhoods and resources. CLN is committed to meeting ongoing literacy needs, and is dynamic and determined to work with community partners to meet emergent and urgent needs.
