When kids can’t read, they can’t succeed.
Schools of Hope is an Early Grade Reading Initiative that helps children build the critical reading skills needed to succeed in school and life. Through Schools of Hope, we recruit, train and place community volunteers in the schools.
The tutor works one-on-one with 1st-3rd grade students during the school day to supplement the work they are doing in the classroom.
In a region where less than half of third-graders currently read proficiently, and more than three-quarters of English Language Learners read below proficiency, Schools of Hope engages community volunteers to raise third grade reading proficiency to at least 90% by 2020.
