The Start Making a Reader Today program is seeking volunteers to read with students at four Benton County elementary schools.
The SMART program has operated in local schools such as Lincoln and Philomath elementary schools and Clemens Primary School in past years, and is expanding to Wilson Elementary School this year. The organization is looking for volunteers to read one-on-one with preschool through third grade students.
Volunteers are asked to make a one-hour weekly volunteering commitment, do a short training and attend an hour long site orientation.
