At Laurel Heights we believe all children are important and valuable. One way we live out this commitment is providing and supporting programs that care for children in the times they are out of school.
School Year Opportunities
Tuesdays & Thursdays 4:30-5:30pm via Zoom
Volunteer with our After School Program. Sign up to be a virtual Reading Buddy with PT After School.
Children, grades 1-5, will come to the Zoom meeting with a book, ready to read. Volunteers come ready to listen and encourage. During their 30 minute session, as children read volunteers ask questions, offer strategies, and give encouragement.
Volunteers attend the Zoom session for one hour, allowing them to have two 30 minute reading sessions with two individual children.
Project Transformation provides all a volunteer needs to confidently support their reading buddy. Prior to a volunteer’s first Virtual Reading Buddy session, they must complete and pass a background check. Once an approved background check is complete, Project Transformation will confirm a volunteer’s registration, send the volunteer a tips-and-tricks one-pager, and the session’s Zoom link.
The first time a volunteer attends Virtual Reading Buddies, training will take place on Zoom at 4p CST, prior to the session beginning at 4:30p. Project Transformation staff is on every Virtual Reading Buddy session ensuring the safety of participants and offering assistance to volunteers.
