CRAFTS: Crafting for Literacy

Words Alive is looking for volunteers to help prepare craft materials for their Family Literacy program in spring. The Family Literacy program supports low-income and under-served families by providing tips and tricks to make reading a fun, family activity while highlighting the importance of early literacy development. As part of the program participants read a new book each week and then complete an activity or craft relating to the book they just read.

To ensure families can complete the activities in a timely manner we need volunteers to help prepare the crafts and activities beforehand. Volunteer duties include cutting out pictures, gluing papers together, sorting pre-cut images, tying yarn, packing paper bags, etc. for the over 350 families we expect to serve this year. Crafts are a key component for each workshop session.

Project Requirements & Important Notes

  • Attire: Wearing comfortable clothing is recommended. The office gets chilly so bringing a sweater is recommended. 

  • Physical Ability: Volunteers should be comfortable using scissors and be able to go up stairs as the building does not have an elevator.
