SITE DESCRIPTION:

  • Three back-to-back sessions 
  • Sessions will take place in a kid-friendly environment where mentees have choice in the daily activities (reading during all sessions is not required)
  • Sessions include a combination of reading-based activities along with relationship-building through which the mentor provides individualized attention and role modeling
  • Supervision and support provided by on-site Read Ahead Program Coordinator
