Working in the Schools (WITS) and the 20th Ward are now recruiting volunteers for WITS Kindergarten for the 2014-2015 school year at Hamline Elementary.
WITS Kindergarten involves a team of trained volunteers who provide one-on-one literacy support and exploration to Kindergarten Students on a weekly basis for the duration of the school year. Volunteers individually read to the same group of 4-6 students for 15-20 minute intervals. Using this model allows each child in the class to have one-on-one reading time with a volunteer.
This program takes place once a week during the school day, generally between 9-11 am. If you are interested in becoming a WITS Kindergarten Volunteer, please contact Monica Luna at 773-955-5610 or at Monica.Luna@cityofchicago.org.
