OWLS: Volunteer Reading Program

Volunteer to work with elementary students, improve their reading, and build relationships with children, the schools, and families of our community.

Every Wednesday, our adults will meet at the school from 9:00 to 10:30 in two sessions with two students for twenty minutes each. During that time, the adults will read to the children and then children will read to them.  This is a program about encouraging each child on a personal level, so our OWLS will see the same children for each session.

The children in the program and the reading material will be selected by their teachers. Each OWL will be paired with another OWL and a student. Only one adult needs to be there each week, so schedules can be arranged to make sure there is always someone to meet the needs of the children.  That said, every participant must attend the first session to meet their students together.

We are currently in full swing with our OWLs reading program, and are not currently accepting new volunteers. Enrollment for Fall of 2023 will take place this summer. Please check back occasionally during that time for details!
