Third Readers/Mentoring

Learn to Read and You Can Learn
Just About Anything

We have a wonderful time with neighborhood 1st & 2nd graders as we seek to boost their reading skills! 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. 

Most of the coaches are Saint Louis University students and Third Baptist members. We meet Wednesdays of the school year from 3:00-4:45. Are you interested? We need more volunteers to work one-on-one with children for the reading session and assist during the group session. Look into this important program and consider joining us to make a difference in a young life!
