Thank you to our America Reads volunteers!

During the school year, America Reads volunteers worked with elementary students in small groups or in one-on-one sessions, devoting at least 2 hours a week to the school. They attended monthly meetings/trainings to develop tutoring skills and strategies -sharing their talents and skills with our community. 10 America Reads volunteers shared their time in the four elementary schools in Region 15 during the 2023-24 school year.
