Do you have 1/2 to 1 hour per week? BECOME A READING MENTOR!

"Jump into Reading"
6"Jump" into reading is a school-based mentoring program. It matches volunteers with local elementary school students.

WHO CAN VOLUNTEER?
Approved volunteers, 16 years of age or older, who are interested in building a friendship and improving a child's reading skills.

WHY SHOULD I VOLUNTEER?
It's fun and rewarding. Our volunteers really make a diffference in the lives of kindergarden, first, and second grade children.

WHAT IMPACT DOES IT MAKE?
School-based mentoring works! A three-year BBBSA study shows that 51% of youth improved in academic achievement, 64% improved in classroom in classroom behavior, and 78% improved in self-confidence.
