Be a literacy volunteer at local schools! Training tomorrow

To be able to read well is a gift so many of us take for granted. You can celebrate that gift by sharing it with local students — become a literacy volunteer. Jennie Morrison e-mailed us with news that she is facilitating volunteer training tomorrow (Wednesday) afternoon/evening, 3:45-6:15 pm at Concord International School in South Park – part of Seattle Public Schools‘ greater West Seattle service area – along with district literacy coach Dan Coles and Washington Reading Corps member Laura Rodriguez. They’d love to see you too. Jennie explains, “The goal of the training is to support community volunteers at local schools with resources and best practices to use as they work with struggling readers. We are doing outreach to our existing volunteer pool, but would also like to connect with the West Seattle community about this opportunity.” If you have the time and inclination, here’s the flyer with more information, including how to RSVP.

    My father did this the last year of his life at a school in Everett while he was battling cancer. It was, according to him, the most rewarding and fulfilling work he ever did. And that’s after several great careers!!

    Thank you for this great post, WSB! Even though the flyer asks for RSVPs by 2/13, there are still spaces available. You will find my contact information on the flyer–give me a call or send me an email to let me know that you will be coming. Hope to see many of you there!

Sorry, comment time is over.
