Virtual Reading Program
for Students in Grades 1 - 5
Utilizing a platform developed by Vello and United Way, books are matched with a student's reading level through the Raz-Kids program.
Students read the story to the volunteer tutor online and then discuss the story together. This program tracks each student's reading progress and features a report to parents.
Volunteer tutors meet with their student online for 30-minute sessions twice a week.

Virtual Family Literacy Program
for preschool through Kindergarten children
Designed for children ages 4-5, this program utilizes EPIC e-library. Volunteers read to the child by exposing emerging readers to the magic of words and pictures books, preparing them to enter school as ready learners.
Children are paired with a screened volunteer reader for two 20-minute sessions per week.
Parents are invited to participate in virtual family literacy workshops to help empower them to help their children's emergent literacy skills at home.
