By pairing caring individuals from the community with elementary students, our Power Lunch program is building the next generation of readers through shared reading experiences. Everybody Wins DC has also provided opportunities for children to engage with books through our StoryTime program, which gives students the chance to meet authors and illustrators.
How You Can Help
The biggest gift you can give to local students is your time. For the 2017-18 school year, we had more than 400 mentors working with 384 students. However, some 245 students were on our waitlist. Becoming a mentor is the best way to help us reach the greatest number of students and create connections between the professional community and local elementary schools.
