Volunteer Reading Guides are matched with 2 elementary school students in grades 2-4 and meet during the day, either in person or on Zoom. The volunteer commitment is 1 hour per day, twice per week, for a minimum of 8 weeks. Volunteer Reading Guides who meet learners in person at their school are expected to be available for one-hour time blocks twice per week between the hours of 9:00 am and 3:00 pm (e.g., available to volunteer from 10-11 am on both Tuesdays and Thursdays). Responsibilities: Your first step is to attend an orientation. To view our upcoming orientation dates, please visit our website www.foundationslearning.com. Once processed, volunteer Reading Guides attend a 3-hour training (March 21st,1:00-4:00 pm @ Foundations office) on reading methods & strategies and will be provided with all resources needed.
