Help teach reading skills

Gary Moskowitz

BURBANK -- Volunteers are needed to mentor Burbank middle school

students in improving their reading skills.

The Warner Bros. Time To Read Program, which began in 1992, integrates a five-step reading process designed to improve the reading skills at


Burbank’s three middle schools -- David Starr Jordan, Luther Burbank and

John Muir.

Volunteers will be asked to donate one hour each week, excluding

school holidays. A three-hour tutor training seminar will be from 6 to 9


p.m., Sept. 5 and 11, at the Joslyn Adult Center, 1301 W. Olive Ave.

A dinner will be served at the training sessions, and a free and

mandatory tuberculosis test will also be administered to new volunteers.

The Time To Read Program has graduated more than 3,000 Burbank

students who attended the program to improve their reading skills.
