Arkansas National Guard and AR Kids Read

Through AR Kids Read, hundreds of volunteers have taken action to help reach the goal of getting
all Arkansas children to read at grade level by the end of third grade. Now is your chance to join them!


AR Kids Read trains and places tutors in all three Pulaski County school districts – Little Rock,
North Little Rock, and Pulaski County. Volunteers tutor students for one hour each week for 10 weeks.
AR Kids Read teaches volunteers to use effective one-on-one and small group strategies.


AR Kids Read recruits these tutors from various Partner organizations including businesses, churches,
and community groups such as the Arkansas Army and Air National Guard.


The Arkansas National Guard has been one of the most dedicated AR Kids Read Partners. The
Arkansas National Guard provided 14 tutors last year for North Little Rock and Pulaski County Special
School District elementary schools, and this year that number has already increased to 20.


Lt. Col. Joel Lynch, Arkansas National Guard Public Affairs Officer and AR Kids Read advocate,
coordinates recruitment of potential Arkansas National Guard tutors. Lynch said the reason the
AR Kids Read program is so successful is because “it is reaching the students during the foundational
level and building the fundamentals of how to read.” Lynch also said the benefits of learning how to
read can help Arkansas students become a National Guard member, “you cannot get into the military if you
cannot read.”


Last year, AR Kids Read recruited 475 volunteer tutors with the help of the Arkansas National Guard and
65+ other Partner organizations to serve in 44 public schools. This year, AR Kids Read’s goal is to
recruit 600 tutors. Already, more than 100 people have signed up to volunteer and you can join too by
signing up to be a tutor at
