Reading is Fundamental

 

The Jewish Federation of Greater Pittsburgh Volunteer Center is happy to partner with Reading is Fundamental’s Everybody Wins! program by recruiting mentors. Everybody Wins! a weekly lunchtime literacy mentoring program that pairs elementary school students with community volunteers to share fun, conversation, and good books.

Students look forward to spending time with their reading mentor each week and benefit from the encouragement of a caring adult. Mentors enjoy sharing the joy of reading with their students. Last year, students and mentors in this program read over 4,350 books together! For just one hour each week, read with a student at a local elementary school, and experience the big impact that this small commitment can make!

During your lunchbreak… YOU can make a difference in the life of a child!

Please email Amy Cohen, Volunteer Center Manager, to see how you can get involved!
