FREE LUNCH for children K-6 and volunteers during summer camps, which is followed by several activities including reading. We know that children who read by 4th grade are much more likely graduate high school, continue their education improve their social standing and have more career options. You can be their mentor/tutor so they experience success more quickly. The mentor encourages "Their" Learner and keep him/her on task. You celebrate successes together as new skills are mastered.

We understand you may not be available each week or weekday, but mentor/tutor and help keep these children from losing skills over the summer and gain new ones.
