By the 4th Grade, only 1 in 3 Dallas County students read at a level on track for college. We help provide an individualized solution to this challenge.
ABOUT NEW HORIZONS:
New Horizons is a faith-based nonprofit organization dedicated to helping at-risk children growing up in environments of poverty, academic failure, and hopelessness.
Mentors use simple, pre-planned resources to assist with homework completion, provide educational support, and develop reading skills with elementary age students. Mentors also provide much needed encouragement, support, and care to our kids.
Volunteer weekly Monday-Thursday from 3:00-5:00 PM at one of New Horizons’ DISD Partner Elementary Schools.
Mentors typically commit to volunteer 1-2x per week for the course of a semester.
