Project to help young children with reading seeks volunteers

I happened to notice a report in the Herald a few days ago suggesting young students in Halifax aren’t getting enough extra help with literacy, and aren’t making the expected targets. 
“Nearly half of Grade 1 students in the Halifax regional school board who received extra help didn’t achieve expected results by the end of the school year, despite daily literacy sessions for several months,” the article said. 
So, if that worries you, you might want to get involved with this community project to help kids with reading. You can help design the program. Details below.
