• Early Grade Reading Initiative

    Program description

    Through a partnership with United Way and Kalamazoo RESA, Galesburg-Augusta Primary School, Comstock Green Meadow Elementary and Comstock North Elementary have been awarded the United Way Early Reading Grant as a way to foster the goal of having every child reading at grade level by the third grade. United Way believes very strongly in partnering with the surrounding community and “living united” in order to help promote literacy and foster a community in which all children are gaining the literacy skills necessary to become proficient readers. In order to carry out this goal, we need your help!
    We are looking for community volunteers to take part in the Reading Mentorship Program as part of the United Way Early Reading Grant. Through this mentorship program, you will volunteer on a weekly basis as a reading mentor and will participate in reading activities with your mentee, which will be a student in preschool, kindergarten or first grade.
