Schools of Hope Reading Program

High school graduation is a powerful predictor of a young person's future success, and research shows that students who don't read proficiently by the end of third grade are four times more likely to leave school without a diploma. The Schools of Hope Reading Program pairs students in grades 1-3 who are behind in reading with volunteers who work one-on-one with them each week during the school year.

Over 60 companies and organizations enable their employees to participate in the program. On-site training is available at companies and organizations that provide 5 or more volunteers. 

“Schools of Hope is making a difference in our community, and Schools of Hope volunteers are making a difference in the lives of children. The time spent with these children can literally make or break their future, because reading at grade level is a powerful predictor of future success in life.” Kevin A. Konarska, Kent ISD Superintendent
