Community Readers is a reading tutoring program, designed to match volunteer community members with young students, struggling to read. Volunteers meet with the same student, twice a week for 30 minutes at at time, over a six-week period. Tutoring takes place after school at either 2:00 p.m. or 4:00 p.m. All materials and training are provided. If you are interested, please let us know. Thank you in advance for taking an interest in helping our students become better readers.
