Read With A Child--Shelburne
35 people are interested
Change a child's life in just one hour every week-be an Everybody Wins! reading mentor at Shelburne Community School in Shelburne.
Everybody Wins! Vermont reading mentors are friends who read with the same child every week. Mentors are not teachers, tutors, or testers! Think of reading time like a bedtime story: a warm, comfortable time together to share a book. When children are read to one-on-one by a caring adult, research shows that their reading improves - and so does their interest in other subjects, their confidence, social skills, and interest in school.
You can find out more about being a reading mentor at our website, www.everybodywinsvermont.org. You can apply online to be a mentor at http://bit.ly/EverybodyWinsapplication.
Everybody Wins! Vermont is a statewide reading mentoring organization. We support over 550 mentors every year in 23 schools in Vermont and the Upper Valley of New Hampshire.
We'll work with your schedule.
