Mentoring After School Program

181 Elementary Children Served in 2022

Mentoring After School (MAS) assists elementary school students throughout the school year. Students meet in a group setting and are matched with an approved teen or adult volunteer who spends 1 hour per week with the child providing help with reading, homework, and positive social norms that will encourage them be more successful in school.

Program results show that 77% of the children enrolled finished the school year reading at grade level, compared to only 39.5% at the start of the year. Equally important, 100% of them passed their grade level, and their average improvement was 5 reading levels. MAS children are more likely to do well in school and graduate, thus contributing to increased graduation rates in our school system and a stronger community overall.
