Spend the one hour a week improving the reading skills of 3rd grade students.  Statistics show that if a student can't read by the end of 3rd grade, their chances of learning to read become more and more improbable. The volunteer spends 15 minutes x 4 students in that hour listening, helping with words and comprehension for the reader. The teachers select the appropriate books for you and the student to use. The students are tested prior to the start of the program and at the end. Over the last two years of the program, all but 2 students significantly improved their reading skills and comprehension. If this is something you would like to participate in, contact Sandi Schwartz at 661-706-6663 and let her know what day of the week you are available. If you would like to substitute, that is also an option.
