About

Volunteers are trained in a two-hour training on early literacy skills and the guided reading technique. Then trained volunteers are placed in second grade classrooms to assist 4 students as they practice their reading. Volunteers must commit to one hour per week for a semester (Spt. - Dec. or Jan. - May). Students will be assisted by a different volunteer each day of the week so that they will practice with an adult each day for the semester.
