About the Program
The Urban League of Middle Tennessee (ULMT) is recruiting volunteers for the Read and Rise Literacy program. It is a virtual program that includes students at Metro Nashville Public Schools. Volunteers will tutor kindergarten through third-grade students virtually, using the web-based application, BookNook. Children, who can be accompanied by a teacher, parent or caretaker during the one-on-one session, will learn phonics, reading comprehension, and play interactive games.
