one to one children's literacy program

Reading Together Children’s Literacy Program

Trained volunteers work individually with children who are struggling with their reading and who would not otherwise receive extra help in school. Volunteers learn simple strategies aimed at increasing each child’s reading confidence.

We support School District 22’s goal that children will “read to learn” by the end of Grade 3.
