To Guide the Next Generation of Readers and Mentor Future Leaders.
Parentis Foundation seeks to address a major contributor to poverty – the inability of children to read proficiently by the end of third grade. Through an intergenerational approach, we provide both older adult volunteer tutor/mentors and children with opportunities to enrich their lives, build self-confidence, and share a sense of purpose through literacy.
By pairing kindergarten through third-grade children with highly trained volunteer tutors, we will improve the literacy skills of children at risk of not reading fluently by fourth grade, while providing meaningful opportunities for older adults who serve as literacy tutor/mentors in after-school youth organizations throughout Orange County.
Experience Corps Orange County tutors and students share a continuum and simultaneous exchange of core values: Responsibility, Respect, Knowledge, and Care.
