Leading Readers – Cole Harbour

Leading Readers is a program that pairs teen volunteers in the community with elementary school children ages 5 - 10 who are struggling or reluctant readers. These pairs meet once a week to read together, play educational games, and explore books through fun activities.

Are you:

  • 15 years of age or older?
  • available Wednesdays from 4:00 - 5:15 PM from September 26 to December 12, 2018?

Why you should become a Leading Readers Volunteer:

  • Do you love reading? Love kids?
  • Do you want to give back to your community & develop leadership skills?
  • Do you want to help a child practice reading, play games & share the joy of reading!
