HBADE has selected Read Aloud Delaware as our Volunteer Program. The Associates Council spearheaded this community service initiative and the Board of Directors voted to approve it. A great cause.
In an effort to “pay it forward”, HBADE would like to ask members, staff of members, spouses, or anyone with an interest to volunteer to read to children in this program. The children really look forward to it and volunteers find it quite rewarding – without taking a great deal of time.
Visit readalouddelaware.org and complete an application, then you will need to be fingerprinted and background check. Walk in any time in Dover, an appointment is needed in New Castle & Sussex Counties. Then they hold an “orientation/training” class and you’re ready to go. This is a very simple process.
Helping a child become a better reader is so rewarding, and allowing a child to read to an adult is a wonderful way to work on those reading skills.
Please consider offering a small amount of your time, it will make such a difference!
