About

Our mission is to to work with school staff and community volunteers to improve literacy skills.

Through patience and encouragement, the volunteers often enhance the self-esteem and confidence in the children they work with, too. We see these results by noting the children's successes in their classrooms as well as the results of school-based and standardized tests.

Applications are now being accepted for the 2016-2017 school year. Tutoring usually begins in late September or early October.

  • Tutor for 30 minutes with literacy materials provided by school staff.
  • Are matched with students based on the volunteers' interests, geographic preferences and availability
