Our Literacy Mentors program is an opportunity to work one-on-one with a middle-school-aged to improve their literacy skills and academic confidence, while simultaneously developing a passion for reading. Volunteers meet with their students once each week. Mentors will have an opportunity to facilitate enrichment activities and learning experiences that reflect each child's needs and interests.
