The Jamaica Read-a-thon 2020
December 1 @ 7:00 am - 7:00 pmFree
A Better Jamaica’s Jamaica Read-a-thon helps us fund our Jamaica Reads program. Jamaica Reads deploys senior citizens to local elementary schools where they tutor 1st graders struggling with the acquisition of their reading skills.
You can help us get more 1st graders reading at grade level — and experience greater academic success — by becoming a reader in the Jamaica Read-a-thon 2020. We just need you to spend 15 minutes of your time to read your favorite children’s book(s) on Tuesday, December 1st between 7:00 am and 7:00 pm.
We’re looking for 48 friends to rally their friends, family, and networks to support A Better Jamaica’s Jamaica Reads program. By becoming a reader for the Jamaica Read-a-thon, you — and your friends — will help more of Jamaica’s 1st graders read at grade level.
