One hour a week to help someone to read School dislrict officials in Brewster, Bridgeport and Pateros are looking for volunteers willing to help children learn to read. All three districts are part ofaprogram that uses the volunteers as tutors, reading to and with children to improve their literacy skills. The volunteers would work at least one hour a week through the school year. In Brewster, the efforts will be concentratedat the elementary school. the volunteers tutors will work with the children one-on-one. "We focus on reading. Exclusively on reading," said coordinator Kristy Baker. Each volunteer will tutor at least two children; organizers want volunteers to work with same children all year if possible, Baker said. Consistent instruction--and instructors---are better for children, she said. Tutors will be asked to work at least one hour each week, she said, and more, if they choose. "Basically, we are willing to take whatever time someone can: give us'tin addition to the one-hour requirement, she "said. "More (volunteer time) is always appreciated." Baker said practically anyone can participate--the only requirement is to know how to read. Training is provided. Under state law, all volunteers must submit to a background check. People who are interested in volunteering in Brewster are asked to contact Baker, teacher Karla Phillips (extension 603 at the elementary school) or grade school principal Eric Driessen. Bridgeport district officials also are concentrating on the elementary school; the emphasis will be on volunteers," Homer said, showing family members how to tutorchildren. In addition, the tutors will learn effective ways to get kids working on their homework. Bridgeport officials will be ready to start soliciting volunteers in a few weeks, Homer said. The Pateros program will include children in kindergarten through high school, said Pateros principal Perry Atkinson. District officials want to use student tutors as well as adult volunteers, he said.
