Community Recipient: The Volunteer Center of Brown County
The Volunteer Center of Brown County’s Reading Coaches for Kids is a volunteer tutoring program designed to increase students' reading abilities and academic success with the help of caring, consistent volunteers. The program takes place during the school day over the course of the school year and focuses on kindergarten through fifth grade. Currently the program is based in 17 Green Bay area schools, as well as schools in the Ashwaubenon, Depere, Howard-Suamico, and Pulaski school districts. Students are carefully matched through work with classroom teachers in order to match up students with the greatest need to volunteers who can assist with their literacy skills.
