Every Child A Reader in Escambia (ECARE) is seeking Reading Pal volunteers interested in working with pre-kindergarten students for the 2018-19 school year.
The goal of this program is to help students build strong pre-literacy skills necessary for kindergarten success. Volunteers are trained to effectively use themed literacy kits that engage children in age appropriate learning activities. Mentor training and on-going support are provided to ensure a positive volunteer experience. A successful background check including a Level II security screening is required of all volunteers. Volunteers are asked to be smoke and tobacco free while volunteering as a Reading Pal.
A commitment of at least 45 minutes one day per week is requested. We allow some flexibility to accommodate our volunteers’ personal and professional schedules; volunteers may change volunteer time or day when necessary and may work in teams of two if desired.
If you have any questions, please contact ECARE at 433-6893.
