RSVP volunteers have been very busy this year fulfilling their mission to assist students in their educational pursuits, and assist not-for-profit agencies in St. Johns County with special support. They made a huge impact on academic achievement this year. Hundreds of students from pre-kindergarten through 12th grade received literacy enhancement, tutoring, and/or mentoring services. The results were higher achievement levels, and increased academic engagement. Volunteers also took part in special activities with the following community partners: ASSIST, St. Augustine Historical Inns, CHARACTER COUNTS! and EPIC Behavioral Services. To read more details about this active and big-hearted group, go to the RSVP website.
If you want to make a difference in the life of a student this year, RSVP is looking for community members to assist once per week in the district’s summer reading or math program. Hours are flexible, and even if you are traveling this summer you can help out while you are in town. Call RSVP/Volunteer Services at 904-547-3952 or email Cheryl Freeman for more information.
