PUTNAM COUNTY — The Putnam County Council On Aging is looking for volunteers to work with school-aged students in a reading mentoring program called Project MORE (Mentoring in Ohio for Reading Excellence). Project MORE is an evidenced based intervention that is making a difference for students with disabilities or students identified as not on track. Project MORE mentoring sessions provide one-on-one instruction with students. Sessions last for 30 minutes and take place four times per week at the host school. Currently, Continental, Fort Jennings, Kalida, Leipsic and Pandora-Gilboa schools have Project MORE Programs. Project MORE was developed by the Putnam County Educational Service Center and is in about 300 schools across Ohio.
For more information on becoming a Project MORE volunteer, please contact Jodi Warnecke at the Putnam County Council on Aging, Inc. at 419-523-4121.
