Memphis-Shelby County Schools has partnered with organizations to recruit individual volunteers for Team Read. A tutoring/reading volunteer opportunity, the program has been aligned with Destination 2025 to help students improve their literacy skills at an early age. Studies show second grade is a critical year for students in which they make the transition from learning to read to reading to learn. Our goal is to ensure that every student has mastery literacy skills to increase academic performance.
This year more than 1,400 individual volunteers have signed up to review sight words at schools throughout the district. For more information or to sign up, click here.
