Power Lunch Needs Reading Mentors



Do you enjoy reading to children? Do you have an hour a week to spare? Literacy Volunteers of Rensselaer County has a pressing need for at least 10 volunteer  reading mentors for the Everybody WINS! Power Lunch program at 

Van Rensselaer Elementary in Rensselaer as well as School 2 and School 14 in Troy.

Everybody Wins! is an innovative reading and mentoring program that increases children’s prospects for success in school and in life. Power Lunch pairs elementary school children one-to-one with volunteers from nearby businesses, colleges and the community. Once a week, reading partners enjoy conversation together at the school, and the adult reads a book aloud to the child while he/she eats lunch.

Readers will be required to attend a training session on Wednesday, September 28, 1:00p.m - 2:30 p.m. at Hart Hall on the campus of Russell Sage College, 71 First Street, Troy. To register or for more information, contact (518) 244-4650 or [email protected]
