More than half of all kindergartners in our state are entering school without the social, emotional, physical and cognitive skills they need to be successful. Research shows that those who start behind often stay behind. The good news is that reading with kids on a regular basis can make a real difference. That's why we are inviting you to become a Volunteer Reader for United Way of King County.
We're looking for friendly, responsible people to read with young kids—one-on-one (not group reading)—at select preschools, Head Start classrooms, and child care centers throughout King County (all sites and shift times are listed via weblink below). Volunteers are needed during weekday daytime hours, and need to be at least 16 years old.
Did you know that a typical child from a low-income family enters kindergarten with a listening vocabulary of 3,000 words, while a typical child of a higher income family enters with a listening vocabulary of 20,000 words? Volunteer Readers can help bridge that gap with books.
By simply committing 1-2 hours a week of your time for a minimum or six months, you can have a profound impact on the lives and outcomes of young children in our community.
For more information including sites and shift times: www.unitedwayofkingcounty.org/readers or call 206.461.3656
