An Overview

By pairing local professionals with elementary students, our Power Lunch program is building the next generation of readers through shared reading experiences. Our organization further sponsors opportunities for children to engage with books through the 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 2017-2018 school year, we had over 400 mentors working with 384 students. However, over 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.
