Every 1 Reads Volunteer Recruitment

Every 1 Reads Overview

SpacerEvery 1 Reads is a community-wide initiative designed to help JCPS students get to proficiency in literacy.  The initiative, which began in 2004, matches volunteers with students in schools and at Out-of-School Time (OST) Learning Place sites which provide academic and recreational opportunities for students before and after school and throughout the summer.

The Every 1 Reads program is a perfect example of the District’s Vision 2015 in action — building partnerships with schools, families, and community members to enrich students’ educational experiences and support their success.  Community volunteers are critical to Every 1 Reads.  These volunteers work one-on-one with students for 30 minutes each week to help them become “reading detectives”.

Connection with a caring community member, through reading, helps to foster resilience while building strong, confident readers.  Many times this connection to an adult is just what students need to help them move to proficiency.

There are so many students who could read so much better if someone just took the time to connect with them.  It only takes 30 minutes a week, and we’ll even train you to get ready to meet your student.  It’s really that easy!
