Want to do something fun and rewarding in your community? Seniors Helping Our Kids (SHOK), an organization that places volunteers in Poway Unified School District (PUSD) schools with students to tutor reading, is currently seeking volunteers. SHOK is an all-volunteer organization that has been serving PUSD for over twenty years. Each year the organization places about 175 volunteers with schools in the district. Tutors are trained to offer enjoyable reading and writing activities that build reading and comprehension skills, confidence, and motivation.

Volunteers can pick the amount of time and day that they’d like to volunteer for and no special background training is necessary. Volunteers are also given the option of choosing which school they would like to work with. Currently, the organization needs volunteers for Los Peñasquitos Elementary and Sundance Elementary Schools.
