Danbury Public Schools and the Association of Religious Communities are partnering once again on the KIDS program. ARC is expanding the program from 80 students to serve 390. New volunteers are needed to be mentors for elementary school students and their teachers, usually in kindergarten classrooms. The KIDS schools are identified as Title 1, low-income schools. Volunteers help students build their reading and math skills through projects, educational games and small group activities as directed by the classroom teacher. An informational meeting for interested volunteers is being held today from 3 to 4pm at the ARC office on Delay Street. Reservations are required. Volunteers will be asked to donate a 2-hour block once a week from October thru the end of this academic year, June 2019.
