Open Opportunity

Description
If you have 30 minutes each week of free time during the school day (8 AM-3 PM) and you can read at a grade-school level, you can help 1st graders learn to love reading! Volunteers will be paired with a "Reading Buddy" with whom they will meet once per week throughout the school year. Teaching experience is not required--the only requirements are the ability to read (in English and/or Spanish), and the ability to commit to 30 minutes per week from September through May. We will have access to the school's library, and the teachers can also provide books. Volunteers must consent to a background check and complete a 1-hour training. Please contact Emily Donahue at edonahue@post.harvard.edu or visit education-connection.org/ to volunteer or get more information. This has been a rewarding and fun experience for many wonderful volunteers, and we would love to have you join our group.
