The Ramsey County Sheriff’s Youth Literacy Plus Program

The Ramsey County Sheriff’s Youth Literacy Plus Program (SYLP) is a year-round program for elementary and secondary education students from high-poverty neighborhoods. Volunteers are needed to assist students with reading, writing, and math skills as well as supervise extra-curricular activities such as arts and crafts, field trips, and recreational sports. Students meet at McDonough Community Center, 1544 Timberlake Road, St. Paul, MN.

Elementary Education students meet Mondays and Wednesdays from 4:15 – 6 p.m. Secondary Education students meet Tuesdays and Thursdays from 3:30 – 5:30 p.m. These newer immigrants have limited English-speaking skills. Volunteers will not only assist them with their homework but also with general life issues, such as job and college searches. Volunteers attend a two-hour orientation.
