Help a Child Learn to Read

Consider becoming a tutor with a program that pairs adults with children in grades Kindergarten through Grade 2nd at the Martin Luther King, Jr. Leadership Academy.

Training is provided to orient volunteers to school policies, reading strategies and the tutoring center supplies. For more information, contact Sylvia Stouten.
