Donald Russell & Jeremy Wilson, owners of local realty brokerage ChuckTown Homes, spent time last week mentoring children in a reading program called Reading with Realtors. The program pairs local Realtors with kids from James Simons Elementary in downtown Charleston, SC.
Are you a Charleston Realtor? Become a Mentor!
Sign up to be a mentor with Reading with REALTORS® (RWR) at James Simons Elementary School downtown Charleston.
Last year, following the Reading with REALTORS® program, student test scores showed significant improvement. With more than 200 students in need of a mentor, we’d love to increase our volunteer efforts to help all of these students!
The Reading with REALTORS program is a mentor/mentee program where local realtors volunteer their time to assist students who are not reading at their grade level, but may benefit and improve with a little added help.
Mentors work with their mentees, one on one, for at least one hour per week. They do not read to the children, rather the children read to them and the mentor assists the students with their reading skills.
