Have you ever wanted to meet with other AR Kids Read volunteers to swap stories or share tips about
what did or did not work during the school year? If so, save the date AR Kids Read’s first “Coffee Stop
and Photo Swap.”
On Thursday, July 10th from 10:00-11:00 a.m. tutors are invited to the AR Kids Read office, located at
900 S. Louisiana, for a morning of networking and storytelling. They are encouraged to bring photos
and stories about their tutoring experience which they can then share over coffee and donuts provided
by AR Kids Read.
The event will be held instead of the usual summer tutor workshop, according to Operations Manager
“While tutor workshops are an important part of providing extra training to our volunteers, this event
will give tutors the chance to network with one another and share stories about their involvement,
which can be just as important of a learning experience as the workshops,” Wheelis said.
In addition, the event will also help AR Kids Read help build a better program for next fall.
