In the STAR reading program at Woodruff Elementary, we are looking for individuals who can give 30 minutes to an hour once or twice a week during the school day and tutor students grades 2-5 for 30 weeks. A background and sex offender check will be done by Americorps at no cost to the volunteer. These students are kids who are just below grade level in their reading skills, and this program is designed to help them get to grade level! Tutors giving time would work with one or two students through the program and in return, gain a new little friend while boosting their confidence and learn some great reading strategies along the way. Tutors are trained in the program by the Americorps member at Woodruff. All materials are provided at the school, all we need is you! Contact Heather Goodwin with any questions you might have. Participant Notes: Must be 17 or older.
