15 Oct Story Time Literacy Outreach
To All Residents of Fearrington Village and Galloway Ridge: You can make a difference!
The main goal of the Women of Fearrington’s Story Time Literacy Outreach program is to advance early childhood literacy in Chatham County by providing reading volunteers and tutors to elementary schools and early childhood centers. Some volunteers read aloud to whole classes, small groups, and individual children. Others provide direct tutoring in phonics, beginning reading skills, and fluency. At the end of the school year, we give each participating child a book as a gift from the Women of Fearrington. By mentoring young learners, we support the efforts of their parents and school teachers and enrich the lives of over 450 children each year.
Join the Women of Fearrington’s Story Time Literacy Outreach and share your love of books while helping children in Chatham County. Read aloud to elementary classes. Tutor a child one-on-one. Assist in remedial reading classes. Flexible scheduling (once a week, twice a month, morning or afternoon) No teaching experience required!
