America Reads

America Reads is Vermont Tech's most popular community service program. It connects students with young children throughout Vermont with the goal of helping them learn to read and to value education in general. The United States government initiated this program in the early 1990's when studies showed American children's literacy rates dropping while most countries' rates were increasing. Now the program is flourishing nationally, bringing college students into elementary schools, daycare centers, and local libraries, so that students who have "made it" can help and inspire those who are in danger of falling into academic frustration and isolation. Vermont Tech students can earn work study for doing this program; in some classes they can also earn extra credit for it. For more information, contact to the Financial Aid Office or faculty member Sarah Silbert, at extension 1222.
