Reading Program & Tutoring

We meet most Wednesdays throughout the school year from 3:00-4:45. Our fall 2021 startup is pending due to the Covid crisis. Our intent is to boost reading skills of neighborhood 1st & 2nd graders. Each child is coached for 30 minutes by a volunteer on foundational reading skills and or sight word recognition, depending on individual needs. Following the coaching session, the children gather as a group for a themed story & craft time. A majority of our reading coaches/volunteers are Saint Louis University students and Third Baptist Church members. We are in need of volunteers to work one on one with our young students for the 30 minute reading session and or to assist during the group session. We appreciate you stopping by to look into this important program & pray you’ll consider joining us on Wednesdays to make a difference in a young life!
