Dear Reading Soul Mates Tutor:

We are delighted that you are volunteering with us to help struggling students improve their literacy skills.  This is an effort that we believe benefits our entire community.  It is our policy and a Gaston County Schools policy to secure a criminal background check on all volunteers before placing them with a student.  Please provide your personal information in the spaces found below.

In addition, one way we share Reading Soul Mates with the community is by publishing photographs, direct quotes, and other written material via media, agency newsletters, flyers, and other publications.  Should we have the opportunity to share your experience in printed form or photograph, we will need your permission.  Please note that by signing, you are granting permission, ad perpetuum, to the Gaston Literacy Council, Inc., for the purposes above.  You may revoke your permission at any time by submitting a written request to Gaston Literacy Council, Inc.

Should you have questions, please contact Gaston Literacy Council, Inc. at 704-868-4815 or via email at childrenslit@gastonliteracy.org.

Your truly,


Merry Deely
Reading Soul Mates Coordinator
