Raising Readers in Story County

Harrison Barnes Reading Academy - After School Tutoring


Running October through April, Harrison Barnes Reading Academy: After School Tutoring takes place on Mondays after school at Central Elementary School in Nevada, Tuesday afternoons at the Boys and Girls Club of Story County in Ames, and Wednesdays after school at the Ames Public Library. Supported by Ames High grad and current Sacramento Kings forward Harrison Barnes, the HBRA provides 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. Contact Lisa Reeves at literacy@raising-readers-org or call 515-520-8686 for more information.
