2011-2012 School Year Recap
Our amazing volunteers (517 strong) provided 13,581 hours of tutoring/mentoring to 3,690 students during the 2011-2012 school year. Teachers report an 80% achievement level for students who had volunteer support for reading and math and 79% improvement in attitude towards school and learning!
How it Works:
Classroom volunteers working as academic mentors make an important difference for students with regards to their academic achievement and interpersonal development. The Volunteer Center’s Literacy Program is committed to lowering the dropout rate by matching academic mentors with struggling students.
20% of students who enter high school at 9th grade do not graduate from high school. When students master early reading and math skills their chances for high school graduation increase exponentially.
