Our goals are to:
1. Build genuine, impactful relationships between students and our volunteer mentors,
2. Help students build a strong social-emotional foundation (aka SOCIAL-EMOTIONAL LEARNING/DEVELOPMENT) through
self-awareness, self management, social awareness, relationship skills and responsible decision-making, and
3. Improve students' understanding of the fundamental building blocks of early literacy.
68% of American's fourth graders read at a below proficient level. 82% of those children are from low-income families.
