Heart of West Michigan United Way Needs Volunteers for Reading Program
It's the season of giving, and nothing say giving better that giving time to someone who needs assistance.
This holiday season, consider giving back to our community by becoming a United Way volunteer. Schools of Hope and Kent County Tax Credit Coalition programs are looking for individuals interested in highly rewarding volunteer experiences. Please consider being a part of this great work and showing your support for Kent County!
High school graduation is a powerful predictor of a young person's future success, and research shows that students who don't read proficiently by the end of third grade are four times more likely to leave school without a diploma. The Schools of Hope Reading Program pairs students in grades 1-3 who are behind in reading with Volunteer Reading Tutors who work one-on-one with them each week during the school year.
Over 60 companies and organizations enable their employees to participate in the program. On-site tutor training is available at companies and organizations that provide 5 or more volunteer tutors.
Won't you consider helping a young person here in Kent County. The gift you get back is unmeasurable.
