READERS & LEADERS
What is the Readers & Leaders Program?
The Readers & Leaders Program is a mentoring program designed to improve students’ reading achievement and academic performance.
The Readers & Leaders Program pairs a volunteer with a Pre-K, Kindergarten,
or First Grade class at a participating Stephens County school. Volunteers may share a book with the entire class or mentor individual students in reading.
The volunteer meets with their class once a week for thirty minutes.
Do I need any special skills or training to be a Volunteer?
No special skills or training are required! All you need to do to be a volunteer in the Readers & Leaders Program is the ability to devote thirty minutes of your time, once a week, and have a desire to make a difference in area children’s lives. (Background checks may be required).
