K-3 Reading Buddies Volunteer Tutor Registration

2017 K-3 Reading Buddies Volunteer Tutor Registration Application

Thank you for your interest in being a part of a very important and special RRSC program. This summer, volunteer tutors are needed to work one-on-one with children who have finished kindergarten through 3rd grade. 

The 2017 K-3 Reading Buddies program will start the week of June 19th and run through August 4th. There are no sessions the week of July 3rd. Volunteers are more than welcome to sign up for more than one session, and if available, are encouraged to sign up for both sessions at their preferred site. 

This year, there are eight sites in Ames and two sites in Nevada. Three of the sites will host evening tutoring (Bethesda Lutheran Church and City Church in Ames and Story County Medical Center in Nevada). The other sites will host morning or afternoon tutoring.
