What is Leading Readers?
A playful, caring, and successful literacy program, Leading Readers engages struggling or reluctant readers from Grades 1-5.
Careful Pairing of Kids with Teens
The Library attracts positive, kind teens to our volunteer programs. They love kids, and are looking for resume-building experience in working with children, so they take their role seriously. In return, kids love their teens. They respond well to being paired with one, consistent, and compatible older kid. They thrive on the attention and grow in their reading confidence due to their bond.
Non-traditional Literacy Mix
We like to show reluctant readers all of the joys of reading by taking their heads out of the books. Leading Readers challenges kids’ regular definitions of reading. Our 1-hour long sessions start with a 1-on-1 reading with their teen volunteer, move into group games, and fun activities - all with a literacy underpinning.
