Literacy Volunteer Program
Thank you for your interest in the Wayzata Schools' Literacy Volunteer Program. We are excited to have you join us!

The Literacy Volunteer Program is a program that focuses on improving the reading skills of struggling readers in elementary schools. The students are not non-readers, but usually have difficulty with comprehension or fluency. Literacy volunteers generally help students in these areas by listening to them read out loud. In addition to improved reading skills, strong relationships are forged between the student and the volunteer. Often, this helps build the student's self-confidence when it comes to their ability in reading.

The program runs from October to May, but we welcome volunteers to join through December. Literacy volunteers come into the schools and meet weekly with an assigned student for 20-30 minutes, one time a week. Students read to the volunteers following a curriculum designed by the district's reading office using books specifically purchased for the program. Books, materials, and training are provided. The program is offered at all of the Wayzata Schools' elementary schools. The ultimate goal of the Literacy Volunteer Program is to help students learn to love to read. We do not teach them to read, but encourage them by being their coach and reading partner.

At this time, we are especially in need of more volunteers at Plymouth Creek Elementary and Meadow Ridge Elementary.

All volunteers will be asked to attend an orientation and complete a background check before starting. If you are interested in joining as a literacy volunteer, please complete the form below:
