The United Way of Acadiana is offering a 2013 training session for volunteers who want to help improve the reading skills of elementary students. The 10 week course begins at 2:00 P.M on Thursday at the Early Learning Center in Saint Martinville.
Volunteers will be partnered with students who struggle with reading in the Lafayette, Acadia and St. Martin Parishes for tutoring one hour per week.
Last year, nearly over 80% of students paired with these United Way Volunteer improved their overall reading scores and the 167 volunteers have helped nearly 250 students.
