We need 170 more tutors to help our local students polish their reading skills – that is 170 students that need tutors. Reading at grade level by 3rd grade makes a huge difference with these kiddos. This difference can be to, or not to, graduate high school. Students that are not reading at grade level by 3rd grade are 4 x’s more likely to drop out of high school. By volunteering in this capacity you will be able to mak a huge difference in their lives. So please share this opportunity as far and wide as you can. If each person receiving this message can recruit 5 tutors it would make a huge difference.
This opportunity only takes 30 minutes of your time, once a week, from your desk. All you'll need is an internet connection and phone access. You schedule the tutor times that can take place on a recurring basis or not. At the end of the school year you will have a a chance to meet your student.
