– READING MENTORS

Reading Mentors is a pilot reading program that will engage community volunteers to read one-on-one with students for an hour a week at Knight Elementary School, beginning the Fall of 2016. Reading forms the foundation for education, employment and civic service. Without the capacity to read, people are substantially limited in their ability to learn, work and benefit the community. This program seeks to truly develop children in Canby to reach their maximum potential.

 – TUTORING

Who? Any elementary student struggling to complete assignments

What? Volunteer tutors who are willing to help elementary students complete homework. (Junior High and High School Students could be admitted on a case by case basis.)

When? Flexible days: Monday – Thursday  4:00pm – 5:00pm

Where? The Canby Center

Why? It is more imperative than ever that all of our students master the skills and behaviors that lead to high school graduation early on in Elementary School—the critical first rung on the ladder to economic success and a productive future, both for our students and our community. To achieve this goal, though, our schools are being called upon to do more with less resources. Schools alone cannot support all of the learning needs of children and youth to be prepared for careers, college, and life. We believe that home and community, as well as school, need to be part of a comprehensive plan for helping children learn.

How? Parents, Teachers, School Counselors, or Intervention Specialists can recommend students to The Canby Center by providing this information for parents or directly to students. You can contact Kelley at 503-263-1125 or email kelley@thecanbycenter.org with any questions.

– SCHOOL SUPPLIES

Every year The Canby Center brings together the faith community, businesses, and school district to help provide school supplies and backpacks to students in Canby. In 2017, around 300 Backpacks with supplies were provided.  The sign up for the backpacks begins the first of August.
