The Little Bit Foundation is committed to helping disadvantaged school children by creating a positive impact for personal growth, increasing self-esteem and encouraging a more focused and active learning environment. We do this by building strong relationships and partnering closely with St. Louis schools.
We do this by providing programs and services that are designed to serve the needs of the whole child in order to have a collective impact on his or her readiness to learn.
The Little Bit Foundation is currently in 21 schools, serving 6,350 children.
The Little Bit Foundation’s 1-2-3 Read! Book Fairs occur every Friday from 9AM to 12PM. Volunteers can be flexible volunteering weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly.
Responsibilities and Duties:
The 1-2-3 Read! Program runs as a book fair for the entire school. Through the 1-2-3 Read! program, each student in the school receives two appropriately leveled books of their selection to keep each semester. The students are given the opportunity to choose books in a book fair setting at no cost to them. This program is designed to increase each student’s in-home library with books suited for their personal reading level.
The Little Bit Foundation and its volunteers will set up three tables of books, each leveled either beginner, intermediate or advanced in the school library. Little Bit volunteers will greet the students, read to students in the Reading Corner, and guide the students in making appropriately leveled selections of books matching their own reading abilities and interests.
