Interested in helping children improve their reading skills? Training for Char-Em United Way’s Literacy Corps will be held on Friday, November 10th at the Char-Em ISD, located at 8568 Mercer Rd in Charlevoix, from 9:30-11:30am. Literacy Corps volunteers work with children and youth in a variety of settings in Emmet and Charlevoix counties. This training will provide Literacy Corps members and other youth-serving volunteers with valuable resources for their volunteer experience. Literacy Corps training is free to attend and will be led by Char-Em ISD Education Specialist, Kari Maki.
Char-Em United Way has and continues to recruit dedicated volunteers to read to, tutor, and mentor students in schools, libraries, day cares, and other youth-serving agencies. We work with these agencies to find times that work for the volunteers, allowing them to set their own schedules based on their availability.
