In the America Reads Program, volunteers tutor one-on-one with a child and assist with his/her reading skills. All it takes is the willingness to commit one or two hours per week to read with a child in Kindergarten to Third Grade.
Training for America Reads will be held at Trigg County Middle School Library on Friday, July 23, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Lunch will be provided. At the training, volunteers will be trained on how to help the children and the importance of confidentiality. They will also learn about mentoring through Big Brothers and Big Sisters.
PACS-RSVP’s America Reads Program is open to anyone who is willing to help a child progress. If you are interested in attending the training and/or volunteering in your county, please contact Monique Roberts, Trigg County Coordinator at (270) 522-1713 or Ashley McKee, Christian County Coordinator at (270) 886-6143.
PACS-RSVP Program has a dual purpose of engaging persons 55 and older in volunteer service to meet the critical needs of Christian, Hopkins, Muhlenberg, and Trigg Counties and to provide a quality experience that will enrich the lives of the volunteers.
RSVP volunteers contribute anywhere from a few to over forty hours a week, serving through schools, hospitals, and other nonprofit and public organizations to help meet critical community needs. RSVP offers maximum flexibility and choice to its volunteers.
You can make a difference in our children’s success for the future!
