United Jewish Federation of Greater Stamford, New Canaan, and Darien
The United Jewish Federation sponsors the Herbert and Sarah M. Gibor Reading Partners program. Volunteers read once a week for one hour with 2 students for 1/2 hour each. The reading is done either during the school day at a Stamford elementary school or at an after school program. Teachers assign children to the program who are "on the cusp" of reading at grade level. The program offers training, literacy workshops,newsletters and a recognition event at the end of the year.
