Reading Beach Club

For seven weeks each trimester, volunteer ‘Storytellers’ visit campus to read with our Kindergarten students. As a volunteer Storyteller you will be paired with one or two students for the whole seven-week session.

Our youngest students often develop trusting, loving relationships with their Storytellers. While occasional absences are unavoidable, we ask that volunteers try to commit to the seven-week period. Many Storytellers continue throughout all three sessions.

All CCSA program volunteers complete government background checks. This is a legal requirement that ensures the safety of our students, volunteers, and faculty. We will be pleased to assist you with this paperwork.
