Sarasota County Schools Seeks Volunteers for Summer Programs



Sarasota County Schools is actively looking for volunteers interested in helping students enrolled in summer programs. Summer volunteer opportunities include:

Summer Learning Academies – Offered at all Title I elementary schools, this full-day program runs for six weeks, Monday through Thursday. During the morning, there is a focus on reading and math. In the afternoon, students participate in STEM activities as well as a variety of enrichment activities including field trips.

Summer Reading Camps – Offered to third graders who need more time and instruction before being promoted to the fourth grade, the six-week program runs Monday through Thursday at Toledo Blade Elementary School, Gocio Elementary School and Gulf Gate Elementary School. Tutors will work one-on-one with the same two students each week; a commitment of at least an hour a week is preferred.

Dive Into Reading – Offered only to rising second graders registered for Bentwood Elementary School’s SLA, each student participating in this new, experiential enrichment program will be provided with books to add to their home library. Students will also be paired with volunteer mentors to work on reading comprehension, vocabulary and emotional and behavioral education in relaxed settings.

No formal experience is necessary to volunteer.
