Mission Statement

The HOSTS (Help One Student To Succeed) program uses one-to-one mentoring in a structured, personalized approach to help elementary students who are struggling in reading achieve reading at grade level or higher.

Description

HOSTS at MSD of Wayne Township is a research-based, comprehensive literacy program that matches volunteer mentors with students reading below grade level or who need additional, ongoing assistance in reading. Mentors typically participate one hour a week at one of the eleven elementary schools in Wayne Township and assist the same two students every week for 1/2 hour each. The HOSTS Coordinator in each school prepares an easy-to-follow lesson, which is waiting for the mentor when s/he arrives. Together, the mentor and student read a book, study vocabulary and work on a reading skill. The one-on-one attention provided by our HOSTS mentors helps our students gain up to two or more reading levels in a single school year.
