DARTS Learning Buddies Program Looking for Volunteers!

 DARTS Learning Buddies is celebrating its 20th anniversary of supporting elementary students throughout Dakota and Scott County, including North Trail and Riverview Elementary schools in Farmington. 

Help us help the students, teachers, and schools improve the academic skills for students – join this trusted intergenerational volunteer program with proven results!

“The students have shown great improvement on oral reading and comprehension. They also have a better attitude towards reading” -3rd Grade Teacher

If you enjoy being around elementary school age children, then the DARTS Learning Buddies Program is for you!  Volunteers work with students for one to two hours a week throughout the school year in the areas of reading, math, and science. Transportation provided by DARTS at no cost to the volunteer.

Participating in the program provides you with an initial orientation as well as ongoing training opportunities during the school year. No teaching experience necessary; just bring your warm smile and helpful words, DARTS can help with the rest.
