Much like the school mentor program, ‘Story Dogs’ involves volunteers. The difference being that the volunteer brings a non-judgemental listener with them, their dog! Reading takes place outside the classroom. The loving nature of dogs gives this program its magic and helps children relax, open up, try harder and have fun reading to a friendly, calm companion. The program aims to improve children’s focus and increase their reading skills. It also helps our kids to become more confident, lifelong readers.
We are currently looking for volunteers to be a part of this fabulous program and hope to have it up and running by the end of 2018.
