COALA would like to provide you with another great volunteer opportunity in our community! The Oklahoma County Bar Association has organized a reading program called Lawyers for Learning. Volunteers of this program act as “reading buddies” for elementary school students in OKC Public Schools. This is an opportunity to read with a child who may be behind in reading and/or coming from a home where English is their second language and to help them advance their reading skills in a one-on-one setting.
Each reading session lasts approximately one hour and takes place at the school. You have the option of reading as little or as much as you like – weekly, bi-weekly, monthly, or anywhere in between. These students are at a pivotal point in their education as they prepare to qualify for promotion to the 4th grade.
Please contact Kasi O’Brien - firstname.lastname@example.org - if you would like more information or would like to sign up.
