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.

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.
