Coordinator needed for Read to a Child!
Read to a Child – a national organization that helps bridge the literacy gap that exists for thousands of children – is coming to Richer this year! The lunchtime reading program will pair students with volunteers from Marlborough’s business community for one-on-one reading sessions to help strengthen vocabulary, listening comprehension, ability to articulate thoughts, self-confidence, enthusiasm for books and reading, and overall reading ability.

Read to a Child organizers are seeking a part-time coordinator to help ensure that mentors, students, and school staff are happy with the program. For details about the position, please see the attached job description. For additional information, contact Linda Winin at linda.winin@readtoachild.org.
