Become a United Way Schools of Hope Tutor Today!

09/18/2017

The United Way of Racine County is asking YOU to be a Schools of Hope volunteer!

Schools of Hope, a United Way-led initiative in partnership with Racine Unified School District and local businesses and community members, provides young children with tutors on a regular basis to increase reading achievement in the early grades.

In just one hour per week, Schools of Hope tutors are helping local students become more confident, capable readers.

Last year, we nearly doubled the average number of hours of tutoring a participating Schools of Hope student received and the data analysis showed a connection between student growth and hours of tutoring completed. To increase this trend, we need to continue to coordinate efforts and place great volunteers in classrooms with great teachers to help students become proficient readers.

No previous experience is needed and busy volunteers can form a tutor team to share a tutoring assignment with a friend or colleague. Tutoring takes place during the school day, October through May.

You can learn more and apply here. Become a Schools of Hope tutor and help build an educated workforce in Racine County!
