Volunteers needed for student reading program
A local United Way is hoping you’ll volunteer your time to help children learn to read.
The United Way of Paducah-McCracken County says it needs volunteers to become Reading PALS (Partners and Literacy Support).
Each volunteer will be matched with a student and will be expected to attend weekly for breakfast or lunch and a reading session.
Schools participating in the program are:
– Clark Elementary School
– Lone Oak Elementary School
– Lone Oak Intermediate School
– McNabb Elementary School
– Morgan Elementary School
– Paducah Middle School
– Paducah Day Nursery
– Reidland Elementary School
– Reidland Intermediate School
Those interested in becoming a Reading PAL need to take a one-hour training course and pass a background check.
The next training dates are Tuesday, July 7 from Noon – 1:00 p.m. and Tuesday, August 4 for Noon to 1:00 p.m. Lunch will be provided during training.
