About

The Morehouse College Community Revitalization Initiative (MCCRI) and the AmeriCorps VISTA program are seeking to recruit committed mentors for our StrongStart Reading Program. We endeavor to assist elementary school students in reading on grade level. Our goal is to assist students by helping them to build confidence and develop adequate reading skills.

It is important that our mentors attend the school that he/she commit to for no more than an hour one day a week.
The commitment will help to build rapport with the student. It also helps the students build confidence by knowing someone cares enough to spend time with them and thereby cares about their success. We want to help our students become better readers in order to help them to become more successful and break the cycle of poverty.
