Education Connection

By volunteering 30 minutes a week to read to a student, you can help solve one of the largest problems in the Greater Austin area – school dropout rates. Research shows that children not reading at grade level by the end of 3rd grade are four times more likely to drop out of school. Join the movement to change this trend and demonstrate Christ to our community by becoming a literacy partner at Barrington Elementary in the Rundberg area. The 30 minute time slot will be split between two second grade students. The volunteer will read a book to the student, then assist the student as they read it back to the volunteer.
