We are unique - no other program with our mission in our community. Our program has made a significant contribution to lowering the drop out rate to less than 1% (from 8% in 2003) and helping the school district achieve a distinguished rating. We offer opportunities for businesses, organizations, and individuals to be involved in various ways with our students and staff, thus providing human and fiscal resources to our schools and students. We partner with the Kiwanis Club for BUG (Bringing Up Grades) for 3rd graders providing encouragement to over 400 students. With one of our programs Experts for Education, we coordinate for guest volunteers who speak to classes about their occupation or hobby about which they are passionate. This may inspire students to seek out certain career paths. Our newest program is BAM, which stands for Be A Man. We have 25 men who spend 1 hour/month in 2 different schools reading to boys and sharing their passions with them.
We need more volunteers to mentor-tutor students of all grade levels. A $50 donation will allow us to recruit and train 2 new volunteers or to purchase 10 news books for our Bucks for Books program.
