Subject: Jenna sent you a message: Volunteer Opportunity with Charleston Book Buddies
Jenna sent you this message from Lowcountry Creative Writing Forum on Meetup:
"Good Afternoon Dave,
My name is Jenna Carrigan, and I am the Outreach Coordinator for Charleston Book Buddies. We are a literacy nonprofit that recruits community volunteers to tutor elementary students who are reading below grade level.
I am reaching out to the Lowcountry Creative Writing Forum because we are in need of passionate volunteers to share their love of reading/writing with children and improve literacy rates in Charleston. We currently have 100 students who are waiting to be matched with a tutor in 8 schools throughout Charleston County.
The volunteer commitment is only 45-minutes per week, and our Book Buddies program has measurable results. Last year, 94% of our students were reading on grade level after one year of interventions with us! We have a structured curriculum that was developed by Stanford Curriculum that allows our tutors to actually teach students how to read, rather than just reading to them.
It would be great to sit down and talk about possibly getting your group involved with Book Buddies. You can also check out our website at www.charlestonliteracy.org. I hope to hear back from you. Thanks so much!
