We know that when kids can’t read, they can’t succeed. Schools of Hope Racine, a United Way-led initiative in partnership with Racine Unified School District, local businesses, and other concerned community members, provides young children with tutors on a regular basis to increase reading achievement in the early grades. As a volunteer tutor, you can help create positive change in the lives of local children.
Becoming a Schools of Hope tutor begins with attending a required one hour informational session at United Way of Racine County, 2000 Domanik Drive, where you will learn about the Schools of Hope model and what you can expect as a tutor. After the informational session, you will have the opportunity to formally sign up to become a tutor and consent to a background check. Volunteers accepted into the program will attend two mandatory tutor training sessions.
