READ-TO-ME and SCHOOL-AGE MENTOR PROGRAMS
Read-To-Me and School-Age mentor programs began in 2010 when Linda Wilbur recognized that some students in Child Development 3 did not know how to read to children. She conducted trainings with her students. The trainings included how to choose developmentally appropriate books and how to read books for young children.
The following year, Linda quickly realized that her students could continue working hands-on assignments with CD 3 and 4 students by beginning a school-age mentor program. This school-age program required one-on-one mentoring for a semester with the kindergarten age children at the CDC.
A lead intern, working with Linda Wilbur, will provide a schedule for sign-ups.
A sign in sheet will be provided.
Requirements for the Read-to-Me and School-Age Mentor Program include:
- Cleared tuberculosis test (Manitou testing current within two (2) years and X-ray within four (4) years)
