Mission Statement

Children that fall behind in reading by third grade are four times more likely to drop out of high school. Schools in Northern Utah are struggling to find the capacity to tutor these at-risk children and bring them up to grade reading level. The Read.Graduate.Succeed. program is the most recognized one on one tutor program in the state with 80 percent of its participants increasing by three or more reading levels by the end of the 30 weeks.

Description

Read.Graduate.Succeed. provides schools with AmeriCorps members who recruit, train, schedule and monitor volunteers to individually tutor students who have been identified as needing extra help in reading by their classroom teachers and principals.

HOW YOU CAN HELP: ➦ Tutor a child at a local elementary school for 1 hour a week for 30 weeks.

OUTCOMES ➦ Changing children’s lives in real time. ➦ Increasing the odds of high school graduation. ➦ A rewarding experience for volunteers and an impactful way to give back to your local community.
