ABOUT

Did you know?
Two out of three students who do not read proficiently by the end of 4th grade will end up either on welfare or in jail. (teachforamerica.org)

However...
Children in poverty who read proficiently by the end of the third grade have an 89% graduation rate. (blogs.edweek.org)

What can you do about it?
You can impact the lives of children, teachers, and families and make a difference in our communities by helping us focus on second-grade reading ability.

How? 
By becoming a volunteer and partnering with us, other churches, and Walker County public schools to help boost reading proficiency. 

Do you need to have a background in education?
No. You will need a willing heart and the ability to work with a child on a basic sight-word list. We will provide the training. 

So, how do I sign up for the training?
Use the buttons below sign up for a training date.

REGISTER FOR OCTOBER 1

REGISTER FOR NOVEMBER 5


TRAINING & VOLUNTEER REGISTRATION

To volunteer as a reading coach, you must participate in an Arise2Read training session. In this session, we'll walk you through what it looks like to lead a child through the sight words, practice their new words, and record their progress.

If there are no available training dates listed above, please email our Arise2Read leadership and let them know you are interested in training to volunteer. Be sure to give us your first and last name, as well as a cell phone number we can use to contact you about additional Arise2Read information. 

CONTACT

In addition to your initial training, to volunteer with Arise2Read on an HISD campus you must register with the district and be cleared as an official volunteer. Once the Arise2Read staff has confirmed which schools you will be serving at, you can use the button below to register with HISD.

CONTINUED GROWTH

Arise2Read will be expanding soon! The program will be developed to include two new schools. We hope you'll be in prayer for this growth as we develop this program for many more schools in our community.

Here are the schools where we'll be active during the 2018-2019 school year:

  • Scott Johnson Elementary
  • Huntsville Elementary
  • Huntsville Intermediate School.   

This growth means we'll need more volunteers than ever. Our current volunteer base is largely driven by a partnership amongst local churches. This partnership also provides much of the support that is needed to make Arise2Read possible.

Here are the churches that are currently partnered together to take A2R into the local schools:
