Volunteer Opportunity - Read With Third Graders Every Week!

September 25, 2019

Volunteer Opportunity with Stedman Elementary

Sign up TODAY! – Calvary/New Hope Partnership

Service Opportunity: 6 More Volunteers Needed to Read with Third Graders Every Other Week. Calvary and New Hope are renewing our partnership again this year to read with third graders this year at Stedman Elementary (2940 Dexter St, Denver, CO 80207). This is an opportunity for Calvary members and New Hope members to build relationships as we seek to be a part of the work of racial reconciliation in Denver through engagement with our community.

• Because of the success of this program last year, Stedman is inviting us to read with two 3rd grade

classrooms this year, for a total of 30 students. We need about 15 volunteers from each church, and so far Calvary has 9 volunteers.

• Each volunteer is paired with a child and reads with them for about 45 minutes.

• The program will tentatively begin Friday, October 11 and will run EVERY OTHER FRIDAY from 9:30 a.m.-10:30 a.m.

• No special skills needed; training is provided for new volunteers.

• New component this year: Once a month, Calvary and New Hope volunteers will be invited to stay for a time of refreshments and connection following the reading hour so that we can build relationships with one another.

• Email Pastor Anne (ascalfaro@calvarydenver.org) to sign up and she will send you the background checkform and training date.
