Did you know that a child from a middle-to-upper-income family arrives at kindergarten with a vocabulary of 25,000 words, while the average child from a low-income family arrives at kindergarten with just 5,000 words?
If you love kids, books and want to make a difference, consider becoming a Play Partner Volunteer with Children, Youth & Family Services. All it takes is a commitment of two hours each week during the school year to help low-income children in our community become successful learners and readers.
