Reading Seed Game Board
Each year, we provide coaches with a fun and interactive Reading Seed Game Board to help motivate students and celebrate their reading successes throughout the school year.
Coaches help their students track the time they spend reading during coaching and at home. Students earn a prizes throughout the game and a special Reading Star medallion for finishing 20 hours of reading by the end of the school year! Many thanks to this year’s generous Reading Seed Game Board underwriter, Pima Federal Credit Union, and our wonderful prize sponsors – Bookmans, Chick-fil-A, Peter Piper Pizza, Ajo Bikes, eegee’s, and Pima Community College!

Professional Development Workshops for Coaches
We offer free monthly professional development workshops for our coaches to increase volunteer skills and improve program quality. We provide time for idea sharing with other coaches, as well as an educational presentation on topics related to literacy and working with children.  
Reservations are required, as we have limited space available at these trainings. Click for a list of workshops and to register.
