Volunteers needed for Every 1 Reads

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - Volunteers are needed to help children achieve a higher level of reading outside of the classroom.

Monday at Byck Elementary School Mayor Greg Fischer and Jefferson County Public Schools Superintendent Doctor Donna Hargens announced a goal to add 1,500 members of the community to become an Every 1 Reads volunteer by the end of September.

Every 1 Reads is an initiative designed to help JCPS students to read at a proficient level and matches volunteers with students in schools and at out-of-school time learning sites.

Volunteers meet with one student for one half-hour each week through the school year.
