Readers in the Heights - Ukulele Program (Flyer)

 

Training Videos and Class Booklets Here

 

2nd and 4th Monday, 7 - 9 PM

Starting August 1st of 2017, MCCM will be providing ukulele instruction to K-3rd graders in City Heights through a partnership with United Way San Diego called Readers in the Heights.  The goal of the program is to:

 

"Combat summer slide, or the summer learning loss that impacts many children in City Heights. For four weeks over the summer, there will be curriculum to enhance their reading skills, confidence, and love for reading."

 

We still need volunteers to help with the program.  Because you will be working with kids a TB test and an informal background check will be required (not fingerprints or Live Scan).   Please sign up now so we can get you cleared by the time class starts!

 

A musical background is preferred but not required.  Training and all learning materials will be provided.  Please click on one of the school links below to volunteer.  Once you register with United Way you will be able to sign up for your preferred teaching times.  The United Way will then contact you with the details on the background and TB tests.

Can't Volunteer but Still Want to Help?

Research continues to show learning to play an instrument can improve students' math and verbal skills, develop self-esteem, and build healthy social networks.  Even if you can't volunteer, your donation today will help us to reach more kid's who need a hand up through the gift of learning to play a musical instrument.
