Salt Lake County:

Central Park Community Center - After School Program

Requested December 2023

2797 S. 200 E., South Salt Lake

K-12 Students After-School Program (Academically Behind)

Looking for weekly or bi-weekly visits any day Mon-Thurs from 3:00 - 4:00 P.M. or 4:30 - 5:00 P.M.

Goals for the program state, "We work with K-12 students who are very academically behind. Though we try to spend quality time with them focusing on reading and mathematics skills each day, the kids often struggle with motivation. We hope that having a dog to read with could add some color back into reading. Most kids at our program also come from crowded schools with difficult social environments. We want to create a calm after-school program, and having dogs visit could really help make a peaceful and loving atmosphere."

Draper Branch Library

Library R.E.A.D. Request

Requested March 2023

1136 E. Pioneer Rd., Draper

Looking for bi-weekly or monthly visits any day Mon-Fri between 2:30 - 8:00 P.M. or Sat between 10:00 A.M. - 2:00 P.M.

Goals for the program state, "We would like to resume our Read to a Dog program. As a public library, we work to develop literacy skills in children and would love to encourage their reading confidence by letting them read to a therapy dog. We would schedule monthly or bi-weekly visits for an hour at a time, divided into 10-minute segments for a maximum of two children per segment."

Horizonte Instruction and Training Center

Requested September 2023

1234 South Main St., Salt Lake City

Adult Public High School and ESL Instruction Center

Looking for monthly visits on Fri from 10:00 - 11:30 A.M. Not flexible - no other time will work.

Goals for the program state, "The students (youth and adult) have diverse experiences that often are connected to trauma, poverty, or a combination of both. The students also struggle with reading and most students are reading below their expected levels by the same time they reach our school. For this reason, your R.E.A.D. program would accomplish two goals, 1) provide therapeutic help, and 2) helping them strengthen their reading skills."
