HOSTS stands for Helping One Student to Succeed. It is a structured program that pairs a student who needs help learning to read and write with a community member who wants to make a difference in a student's life. With the help from volunteer mentors, students receive the extra attention and encouragement they need to become better readers and better students.
It is up to the individual to decide what day they come and how much time to spend with the HOSTS students. Hosts volenteers give 30 minutes to an hour, one day a week. Schedules are flexible and are arranged with volunteers.
