The purpose of Page Turners is to promote literacy skills through providing a public reading mentoring program for children within the community.
Page Turners is a volunteer-based organization that meets weekly with 1st-4th grade kids at the Tempe Public Library to guide and encourage them as they read to us. We partner up with the kids at a one-to-one ratio, providing a unique mentoring relationship as well as the opportunity to make sure their comprehension, pronunciation, and confidence in reading are developing. This club is a fun and simple way to effectively reach out into the community and ultimately serves to provide lasting positive academic and social influences to bright and adorable kids we read with. The required commitment is extremely low, as we only meet for about an hour each week, but commitment to those meetings is essential in order to ensure that the kids have a mentor each week. There is no prior experience required; you only need to love kids and love reading!
