If you are interested in getting involved at Youth Encouragement Services, we are looking for volunteers at our center in West Nashville!  The details are below:
Y.E.S. at St. Luke’s needs Reading Buddies! Reading Buddies is a summer program that strives to make reading fun and easier for at-risk, low income children.

Orientation for Reading Buddies is on Thursday, June 12 from 3:30 – 5:30. The program runs from June 16 – Aug. 1. We ask our Reading Buddies to come at least once a week, but you are welcome as many times as you are able to come. We usually have 45 minute sessions with groups of about 12 kids. Depending on the consistency of our volunteers, we will try and match the same child up with the same buddy. Our Reading Buddies schedule is:

Mondays: Group A (1st -3rd graders)  10:15 – 11:00, 11:00 – 11:45
          Group B (4th-6th graders)    11:45 – 12:15, 1:15 – 2:00

Tuesdays: Group A   10:15 – 11:15, 11:15 – 12:15

Wednesdays: Group B     10:15 – 11:15, 11:15 – 12:15

Time can be spent reading with and to the child and playing games that practice reading skills. If you have any questions, please call Suzie at 350-1140 or email at .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address).
