Orange County Public School's Human Resources Department adopts Rock Lake Elementary School by tutoring 1st and 2nd grade students each week to help them improve their reading skills.

About

Read2Succeed matches volunteers with a first grade student or a pair of second grade students in participating Orange County Public elementary schools. First grade students focus on vocabulary skills and background knowledge. Second grade students focus on reading fluency and comprehension.

Volunteers spend approximately 30-45 minutes each week (same day and time) working with their student(s). Additionally, our volunteers provide encouragement and care for the students' personal development and growth. All tutoring sessions take place on the elementary school campus during school hours.

To participate in the program, volunteers must register on both the Foundation for OCPS website AND the Orange County Public Schools ADDitions volunteer program, pass a required background check, and attend a Read2Succeed new volunteer interest session.
