In just 30 minutes once a week, without ever leaving your desk, using only a telephone and internet connection, you can help an at-risk student learn to read.

The schedule is flexible, during the work day and it is determined by you.

  • Students in Orange County are struggling to read at grade level
  • Students that don't read at grade level are more likely to dropout of high school
  • Students that are in jeopardy, or simply, not reading at grade level have been hand selected by their teacher to take part in this program
  • Please follow the registration steps below to become a tutor and help those students today - tutors are still needed
  • If you have questions or would like to view a video on the program please click this link or email:
  • There are 10 tutors per classroom; groups are welcome to 'adopt' a classroom. If you would like to know more about how your group can 'adopt' a classroom and collectively visit the students after the project contact:
