New Initiative!Be a part of the Reading League! We need volunteer reading mentors for the school year. We train community members who love reading and love children to work once a week with struggling students for the school year. This is either before or after school, with 1-3 students, and the mentors will give students books to take home for their very own. Help a young person find that Spark! that sets off a lifelong love of reading!
Community members can volunteer to be trained as reading mentors for children in Kindergarten through third grade. We will provide ongoing training and support, and group the volunteers into teams to work after school in selected elementary schools. We are looking for people who have a passion for reading, love working with children, and have good communications skills. Bright EYES wants to make sure our team of Reading League mentors reflect the cultural and linguistic diversity of our great community. Find out more details about Reading League Facts 2017 (PDF).
