Event Description

San Antonio Youth Literacy

San Antonio Youth Literacy's Reading Buddy training prepares our Reading Buddy Volunteers to participate in our school-year long mentor program with struggling 2nd grade students in San Antonio. This program asks you to commit 1-hour per week throughout the school year to mentor during the school day at one of 74 Title I elementary in San Antonio. Volunteers will read with 2 students for 30 minutes each and help build confidence in young readers as well as foster self-esteem and the love of reading. To participate in our program, please follow the link below to our online registration form and select the date you wish to attend a training. Please refer any questions to our Volunteer Manager, Kirk Fallin at kirk.fallin@sayl.org or by phone at (210) 299-1533 x107. http://sayl.wpengine.com/reading-buddy-application/
