Since 2014, Palm Aire resident Sue Ford Patrick, a retired diplomat and educator, has been directing the Palm Aire Student Enrichment Program at a local neighborhood elementary school.

The goal of this volunteer program is to help children to improve their reading skill and stimulate their interest in reading.

Volunteers work one – on – one with a child for 30-60 minutes once a week. The difference made in fostering reading proficiency can be magical!
