What our partners are saying

The bond that students are making with volunteers is so important and educational as well for them.

Meredith Moran, Site Liaison at Edgar B. Davis K-8

All the teachers tell me how soon they noticed a significant improvement in students that work with volunteers. I’ve seen firsthand the positive impact: students show more confidence and willingness to participate in the classroom.

Glenda Soto, Site Liaison at East Somerville Community School

The assistance my tutor gave the three students she worked with was very beneficial. She provided them with individual attention in the areas they required a little extra boost and for one student the challenge he needed to push him to the next level.

Susan Moriarty, Kindergarten Teacher at Potter Road Elementary

It is incredibly beneficial to have students given individual, targeted assistance! Some of the students who were tutored have no English-speaking assistance at home, making the time even more beneficial.

Nancy Hedrick Devine, Former Site Liaison at John F Kennedy Elementary

We LOVE our volunteers. They provided much need support to our students, particularly those who struggle or need a bit more attention.

Anonymous Literacy Specialist

The adults that come truly care about the children and want to help them grow academically.
