?Dream? foundation seeking volunteers

After-school program planned for Woodside Elementary

Express Staff Writer

    The I Have a Dream Foundation of Idaho is looking for volunteers to assist with an after-school tutoring and mentoring program at Woodside Elementary School in south Hailey.
    The foundation, last school year, adopted the entire Woodside third-grade class of 50 students as “Dreamers.” As Dreamers, the foundation has promised to assist them in achieving academically so that they can eventually graduate from high school and later go on to college. The foundation has further promised the Dreamers that it will fund two years of community college for them.
    Those students will be fourth-graders this school year. Project Coordinator Kelly Ortego said some of the Dreamers need assistance now. The after-school program will start on Sept. 16 and will run from 2:30 to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday.
    Ortego said the volunteers should be prepared to assist the students on those days.
    “Any adults who want to come in and read with kids, just give me a call,” Ortego said.
    She can be reached at (208) 450-9466.
