Volunteers needed to read with students

If you love to read and are interested in working with children, become a volunteer with the One to One Children’s Literacy Program

If you love to read and are interested in working with children, consider becoming a volunteer with the One to One Children’s Literacy Program.

Parent and community volunteers are needed to support our students with their reading. The commitment is 1.5 hours per week for 12 weeks starting in mid-February. A three-hour training session for all volunteers in basic reading strategies is mandatory as well as a criminal record check. Training sessions will be held on Wednesday, Feb. 4 from 9 a.m. to noon at South Broadview Elementary School in Salmon Arm

For information, contact Jennifer Findlay, Literacy Outreach coordinator, at 250-833-2095 or admin@shuswapliteracy.ca.
