Ready to Read

Ready to Read

Ready to Read is an initiative to help improve literacy skills in children 0-5 and educate parents on the skills necessary to make their children efficient in literacy and improve kindergarten readiness. This program runs during the school year from 5:30-7:30pm on pre-determined weeknights.

Some of the volunteer roles for Ready to Read include:

  • Serve the evening meal
  • Lead a family in either infant, toddler, or preschool literacy skills
  • Provide on-site childcare as needed for older children

 Final 2017 dates. Check back next fall for 2017-2018 locations and dates/times
