Team Read seeks volunteer tutors

Team Read, a program of The Children's Reading Foundation of the Mid-Columbia, is looking for volunteers to work as reading tutors with first-, second- and third-graders in the Kennewick School District.

The minimum commitment is two 30-minute tutoring sessions a week with one student throughout the school year. Bilingual and substitute tutors also are needed. Training is provided and volunteers are fully supported in their efforts to help struggling readers.

Volunteers have been as young as 16 and well over 80 years old.

Training sessions will be this month and tutoring will begin in October. For more information, call 222-7324 or go to teamreadtutoring. com.
