Read with Baker County Literacy Coalition
You can be a volunteer reader for 30-60 minutes, once per week, at one of the public elementary schools. You can read one-to-one or in small groups with Pre-K through 6th grade children.
The Literacy Program serves over 1,500 Pre-K through 6thth grade children in a total of 15 schools, social service, and health agencies. An average of 35 adults read with over 100 children per week during the school year to help them improve their reading skills. Last summer volunteers read with children Tuesdays – Thursdays in the 6-week summer academy program at N. Baker School.
We will give children up to 3,000 free books this year! Students pick out books twice per year to keep. Social service and health agencies distribute the books to their clients.
