O.T.T.E.R. –  Older Teachers Teaching Early Readers

Citizens’ Commission for Children has funded a new program for VCI that impacts underserved preschool children. The new program will be called OTTER (Older Teachers Teaching Young Readers) and will focus on introducing young children to the joy of reading.  OTTER volunteers will spend time reading to young pre-K students in the Orlando metro area to instill in them a lifetime love of reading and help build literacy skills that will help students succeed academically.

Thank you for your interest in the OTTER program! Due to the challenging nature of this school year, we are temporarily pausing acceptance of new volunteer applications.

Please check back periodically. Thank you for your patience and understanding!

Sponsor a child and help them learn to read.

Your commitment for 12 monthly donations will help support children in the program by providing a book-of-the-month to them to read every month for a whole year! Help bring the magic of reading to pre-k children and grow into great future students!

$7 a month ($84) – provides for 3 children

$14 a month ($168) – provides for 6 children

$28 a month ($336) – provides for 12 children
