Read Aloud W. Va. In Need Of Volunteers

Organizers of the Read Aloud West Virginia program are looking for adult volunteers to read to elementary school children in Kanawha County.

Read Aloud is a non-profit group that aims to improve the national reading test results of young students in West Virginia, by having their volunteers read to them and interact with them.

Read Aloud volunteers visit their assigned schools once a week to read to children, usually keeping to a schedule that works for the students and their teachers-in-charge, as well as for the reading vounteers.

For those interested in volunteering, Read Aloud officials have scheduled a public orientation for March 10 at 1 p.m. at the South Charleston Public Library. Contact Read Aloud West Virginia at 304-345-5212 for more information.
