Million Mentors, Tutors and Readers

 Million mentor header

TOGETHER we can tackle the toughest problems and make every community a place where people realize their dreams, live healthy lives, and prosper now and into the future.

TOGETHER we can increase the odds of success for not just one child but all the children in our community.

TOGETHER we can bridge the achievement gap.

Right now in our service area 55 percent of kids are not reading on grade level--and for English language learners that number jumps to 72 percent. The rate of students dropping out of high school is 23 percent. Lack of student achievement is a problem in Utah, like in many other states.

That is why we have joined with United Way's across the country in an effort to recruit one million people pledging to be readers, tutors, or mentors. We need everyone to get involved. No matter how much time you can devote to volunteering, every minute counts towards making a positive impact in the lives of others. Reading to kids for an hour a week, spending time at an afterschool program once a month, whatever you can do makes a big difference.

TOGETHER we can get results that no one can achieve alone.
