The Energy Express Program begins on Monday June 24th and continues through Friday August 2nd at Emerson, Franklin, Martin, and Williamstown Elementary Schools.
Volunteers, ages 13 and older, are needed to read to children, listen to children read, help with writing and art activities, and make a difference in the life of a child. If you have an hour to spare or six weeks, ENERGY EXPRESS WANTS YOU.
In addition to the learning experiences, two nutritious meals are served each day. If you are interested in this summer program which provides summer learning experiences focused on reading, please contact the WVU Extension office at 304-424-1960.
