Literacy Volunteers of Rensselaer County Seek Reading Mentors for Children in Troy Public Schools



Do you enjoy reading? Would you like to share your love of reading with children to support their reading development? Do you have an hour a week to spare? If so, the Everybody WINS! Power Lunch program is just for you. 

Everybody WINS! Power Lunch 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.

Literacy Volunteers of Rensselaer County needs mentors for School 14 on Wednesdays and School 2 on Tuesdays. Please know that volunteers will be required to wear a mask while in the school and while reading. The children will be unmasked since they will be eating their lunch while volunteers are reading. 

 

The one hour required training will be held on Monday, October 18th, 12:00 -1:00 pm at the LVORC Office. Call 518 244-4650 or email [email protected] to reserve a place.
