To ensure Sacramento is the best place for children to learn, our community needs a support network. With a structured, research-based curriculum that requires no prior experience, we transform any volunteer into a high-quality instructor, enabling us to reach more children and increase the capacity of public schools. We mobilize hundreds of community members to tutor, mentor, and empower struggling readers, one-on-one, for an entire school year. Our efforts focus on young K-4 students early in their school careers to maximize the amount of instruction they receive before their achievement gap widens, ensuring that as many students possible are reaching proficiency by fourth grade. Our students thrive with the supportive attention of their tutors, and these relationships foster self-confidence and a belief that education matters.
