Hillsdale Reading Program
The Hillsdale Reading Program (HRP) seeks to serve community schools by providing reading mentors in the classroom. Volunteers assist with students’ individual reading level, asking questions to encourage critical thinking skills and sharing an enthusiasm for the activity. The goal is for the elementary-aged students to learn the value and enjoyment of reading so their future may be more academically successful. HRP volunteers currently serve locally at Gier and Bailey Elementary Schools assisting teachers in grades K through 4.
