Seeking classroom grandma and grandpa readers

The Opportunity Alliance is seeking older adults, age 55 and over, with time during the week to help children develop their reading skills.

Under the guidance of classroom teachers, volunteers are needed to sit and listen to children read,
pick out books and help them to sound out words.  As one volunteer said, “The benefits to me are seeing a positive change in a child. One little girl struggled to read but with encouragement and praise she now wants to read with me daily.”

Applicants who meet generous income guidelines receive a nontaxable stipend, travel reimbursement, ongoing training and are guaranteed to laugh and smile every day! 

Studies prove those who volunteer have better health and increased friendships. Call today to learn more about our volunteer opportunities at 207-773-0202 or toll-free at 1-800-698-4959.
