Help a Struggling Reader this Summer
June 18, 2016 - July 30, 2016
Help a child gain confidence and increase literacy skills by volunteering to tutor them in reading. Tutoring held at the Martin Luther King Library on Saturdays, 10:15a.m. – 11:15a.m. or 11:15a.m. – 12:15p.m. No formal teaching experience is required. Training in the Peak Reader® program is provided online or in person. The program, aimed at helping children who are reading below grade level (grades 1 through 6), has a 95% success rate. The minimum age requirement to volunteer is 14. To sign up, call Children’s Literacy Center at (719) 471-8672, or send an email to, firstname.lastname@example.org.
### THE END ###
The Children’s Literacy Center (CLC) began as a Junior League project in 1991 and has since evolved into a statewide effort to “build a life of success for children through a foundation of literacy.” We provide one-to-one tutoring to children who are not reading at grade level at no cost to families. Additionally, we recruit and train nearly 400 volunteers each year. Beginning with one location and sixty-two children in 1993, volunteers continue to tutor using the Peak Reader® curricula at 17 different locations in Colorado.
