Description Contact Nonprofit Directly
Did you know that low-income and struggling readers lose up to two months of reading growth every summer!? Thus, TLC created our summer SOAR program, which is an 8-week academic summer camp led by our full-time staff to help combat this summer slide. After evaluating how we can best serve our students and the community need this summer, we have determined to move forward with short-term, intensive one-on-one tutoring during the second half of our SOAR program. Which is where our volunteers come in! Following are the logistics around this opportunity:
WhenJuly 22 – August 15
How Often: Volunteer two days per week for all four weeks
Which Days: Monday/Wednesday or Tuesday/Thursday
What Time: 3 – 4pm
Where: Teton Literacy Center
A small commitment of 8 hours this summer can make a BIG difference!
