Project Cornerstone Asset Building Champions (ABC) Program

The ABC Program consists of volunteers who read specially selected books to a class, hold class discussions and supervise a simple activity.  When you deliver these lessons, you will be forming relationships with students. YOU will become a caring adult at school for youth. What a wonderful responsibility!

 

Project Cornerstone provides written ABC lesson plans with detailed information discussion/activities to accompany each book. Our school has Lead volunteers who will mentor and guide our ABC volunteers. As an ABC volunteer, you will commit to spending approximately three hours per month in the following ways:

 

  • 1 hour monthly training at our school site with the ABC Lead volunteers to thoroughly discuss the book of the month, practice discussion questions and prepare activities
  • 1 additional hour monthly of preparation and practice in advance of the class reading. This preparation may be done in a partnership/small group or at grade level meetings…
  • 45 minutes-1 hour monthly of class ABC reading/discussion and activity.

 

By volunteering just 3 hours per month, our Asset Building Champions build relationships with young people by reading selected books and leading classroom activities and discussions with a focus on respect, tolerance, peaceful conflict resolution, caring and friendship. Children learn what to do if they encounter bully behaviors and how to become an UP-stander.

 

At this time we are gathering parent interest in implementing this program. If you are interested in participating in this program and becoming a classroom reader or a lead volunteer, please send an email to Pomeroy PTA at:
