Read To Achieve Program


Read to Achieve (R2A)

Monday—Thursday, 4:00 to 7:00 pm

Reading is an essential life skill and all of our W2C students will benefit from improving their reading abilities. Read to Achieve takes place on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday afternoons and evenings at the Waukegan Public Library. It is designed to improve W2C students’ reading abilities, specifically vocabulary, comprehension and fluency.

Each reader works with a student for 3/4 hour. The volunteer can bring materials (W2C has materials available) or the student can bring class reading assignments. The student reads aloud and the volunteer checks comprehension and whether the student knows the meaning of more difficult words in the text.

Note: All volunteers must complete a child protection training session and have a background check by W2C. For more information contact Elyse
