Among them are:

New Horizons Academy Camp, operated at Baltimore's Montebello Elementary School, 2040 E. 32nd St., by a collaboration of city public schools and Office of Homeless Services, the Center for Poverty Solutions and the YMCA. Volunteers -- including celebrities -- are needed to read to children in the program from 9: 30 a.m. to 10 a.m. Wednesdays, from June 30 to Aug. 18. Contact: Dawn Shirey or Jiovianni Felton, 410-396-6506 or 410-396-6127.

The Enoch Pratt Free Library, which needs "computer tutors" to teach children ages 9 to 14 to use the Internet and e-mail. Volunteers for the program, held at the central library and several branches, should be computer-literate, with a basic knowledge of Windows 95. Training for the Pratt Internet Program will be provided. Contact: Marion Hirsch, 410- 396-9940.
