Read901 Reading A-Z Assessors Neeeded!

Join a county-wide effort to help our elementary students read at grade level.

Throughout the year, organizations around Shelby County provide out-of-school (summer & after-school) time programs for elementary students. Research and experience tells us students can benefit from a variety of engaging programming--including academic. Literacy Mid-South collaborates with a network of partners to support meaningful literacy programming.

We are looking for volunteers to assess elementary students on their reading skills. No education experience necessary. Anyone who likes kids can be a great assessor.

Register for the Reading A-Z assessor training below, which will allow you to volunteer with many of our community partners:

We were the people who were not in the papers. 

We lived in the blank white spaces at the edges of print. It gave us more freedom. 

We lived in the gaps between the stories.
