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. 

Can I stay informed about Arise2Read throughout the school year?
Absolutely!  Just take a look at our A2R Facebook Page.

So, how do I sign up for the training?
Easy!  Take a look at the next section.


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.

Monday Training, June 10 (6-7:15 pm)

Tuesday Training, July 9 (6-7:15 pm)

Monday Training, Aug. 26 (6-7:30 pm)

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.

*Please note, the screen will say EMPLOYMENT APPLICATION.  You will not be applying to be employed.  There will be options for VOLUNTEER ONLY.

CONTINUED GROWTH

We will be in all 4 of the elementary schools in Huntsville for the 2019-2020 school year!   This is certainly an answer to prayer and we hope that you will continue to pray for us as we train more volunteers to help take this program into the following schools.

This growth means we'll need more volunteers than ever. Our current volunteer base is largely driven by a partnership amongst local churches and civic clubs. 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:
