NO ONE FAILS!
No one fails! Is a lunchtime literacy and mentoring program that pairs up elementary school students with volunteers from local companies and other community organizations to share lunch, conversations and good books. NO ONE FAILS! is based on a national model that recognizes the many benefits of reading aloud to children one-on-one.
How does it work?
One day out the week, volunteers spend their lunch breaks reading one-on-one with a student at a nearby elementary school. The volunteers are recruited from universities, community organizations, faith-based institutions, and government agencies.
What are the benefits?
To effectively show an impact upon low- income students in reading comprehension, motivation and achievement, as well as overall academic performance, classroom behavior, self-confidence and social skills.
We want to improve students academic performance by the program 8 weeks conclusion. We hope that 75% of the students will have enjoyed reading, well aboved the 25% of non participating students. We want to improve attention span by 35% or greater. We want 100% of parents, students, volunteers and teachers to report being satisfied with this program.
