About

Good Samaritan Readers is a one-on-one reading program for at-risk readers. We pair struggling readers in the first grade with a committed mentor who works with the student for one hour each week from October 2016 to June 2017. Students are enrolled in our program from the first through third grade. The relationship that develops between the tutor and the student is transformative and is critical for driving academic success.

We are looking for reading mentors for grades 1-3 students for the 2016-2017 school year at a few elementary schools. Tutoring sessions will be held for one hour between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. during the school week.

Time Commitment: An hour every week until June 2017

Please note that all prospective volunteers are required to fill out a Puyallup School District volunteer application form on-line. When it asks for "Volunteer Category" please select COMMUNITIES IN SCHOOLS. This will ensure we receive your application. If you have applied in the last 2 years there is no need to apply again. The application is valid for 2 years.

We are always looking for caring individuals to join our team of dedicated volunteers! Your support will make a huge difference in a child's life!
