Description

This program helps struggling readers in grades 1-3 (ages 6 to 8) by providing a positive, non-judgmental environment to encourage good reading habits. One on one with a teen volunteer, children have the opportunity to read to a registered therapy dog.

Each child will have 10 minutes within the hour each week to read to Halley, our registered therapy dog.

The program runs for 6 weeks, Thursdays: November 2 to December 7. Participants must attend all 6 sessions.
