Public Education Foundation needs volunteers to help kids read

Mar 30, 2015

The Public Education Foundation needs volunteers to provide one-on-one help to children who are struggling with reading, as part of the Clark County READS Reading Partner Program.

Each volunteer will be assigned two children, with the adult and each child meeting once a week for 30 minutes of reading to each other. Volunteers will be trained in techniques to help build a child's comprehension skills and reading fluency while instilling in the child a love of reading. The next session runs for 12 weeks, from January through April, during regular school hours at the child's school.

For more information, call Clark County READS at 799-1042 or send an e-mail to
