Harrison Barnes Reading Academy
Named after Ames High grad and current Dallas Mavericks forward Harrison Barnes, and partnering with the Ames Public Library, the Reading Academy is offered each Wednesday after school to provide free tutoring to children in kindergarten through 3rd grade. Students work one-on-one with trained volunteer tutors to supplement their in-school reading activities and focus on at-risk readers specifically. If you are interested in volunteering for this program, please contact Lisa Reeves at literacy@raising-readers-org or call 515-520-8686.
The program runs October 26-May 17
