AWC Tulsa Chapter-Reading Partners Program
Monday, July 12, 2021, 8:00 AM until 5:00 PM
AWC-Tulsa and Reading Partners have teamed up to provide a volunteer opportunity for you!
Reading Partners is a local organization placing community volunteers in low-income schools to help kids master basic reading skills. AWC-Tulsa has an existing partnership with Anderson Elementary in Tulsa and they are in need of volunteer tutors. Reading Partners will manage the program and provide the training and then match you with a student. AWC-Tulsa's role is to help recruit volunteers for this meaningful effort.
Here is a little history about our partnership with Anderson Elementary, located within Tulsa Public Schools:
2020 was the ninth year the Association of Women Communicators Tulsa chapter (AWC Tulsa) has given a book to each child as part of the organization’s annual community outreach. AWC Tulsa initiated the giveaway in 2012. Since the program’s inception, over 2,000 students have had the opportunity to choose a book to take home. Additionally, through generous donations from our members, we provided scarves, hats and gloves to the school as well.
Becoming a reading tutor is another way we can enhance our partnership with Anderson Elementary. This program will allow you to connect virtually to students.
In addition to attending training prior to the Fall 2021 School Year, here is a list of responsibilities to consider:
• You will have one session per week, any day except Wednesday
• You will work with one student about 45 minutes per session
• The materials will be emailed to the tutor in advance
• The tutor will be asked to log in 15 minutes early
By registering for this program, you are indicating that you would like to be trained as a volunteer reading tutor and paired with a student. Once registered, we will commuicate the next steps for training.
