Lawyers for Literacy

 

 

“Join Tucson’s legal community in an effort 

to help kids improve their reading skills!”

 

 

Since 1991, the Pima County Bar Association has sponsored the Lawyers for Literacy ("LFL") program at

local elementary schools. LFL volunteer tutors meet individually with 4th and  5th grade students who read

below grade level for one hour on Mondays  after school. We provide you with instructional material about

tutoring young readers before your first session. The sessions begin at 5:00 p.m., 5:30 p.m. or 6:00 p.m.

 

The program starts during mid-October and continues until the first Monday in December. LFL is then on

hiatus until mid-January. The last session takes place on the first Monday in May.  LFL invites all law

students, judges, lawyers and legal support staff to join this program. You will help a student become a

better reader, increase the esteem in which our profession is held, and make lasting contacts with other

members of Tucson's legal community.

 

LFL will notify you in early October about your school assignment and will provide directions.  You will then

be assigned to your student at the first session. All tutoring takes place at the school library under the

supervision of a teacher from that school. If you would like to be assigned to the same school as another

tutor please so indicate. Please email or phone PCBA member Chris Ward (see below for contact info) if

you have any questions.
