WHAT IS THE REACH PROGRAM?

The REACH program pairs a student who needs help in reading with a community member who wants to help a child become more successful in school. REACH volunteer mentors follow a daily lesson plan structured to match each student’s diagnosed needs and instructional reading level. The goal is to accelerate student achievement.
 
The one-to-one attention is a vital component to building a student’s self-esteem and self-confidence. The immediate feedback and daily positive comments from the mentors not only boost student self-confidence, but competency levels as well. With the help from volunteer mentors, students receive the extra attention and encouragement they need to become better readers and improve academic achievement.
 
 
WHO CAN VOLUNTEER?
Any person who wants to help a student succeed in school is qualified to be a REACH mentor. Individuals, such as retirees, parents, grandparents, high school students, college students, business persons, and members of various civic organizations volunteer in our REACH classroom on a weekly basis.
 
HOW WILL VOLUNTEERS KNOW WHAT TO DO?
All volunteers attend a brief orientation session before working with students. REACH mentors will help students work on assignments provided by the teacher.
 
The school provides the plan: the mentor provides the one-to-one attention!
