Profile Description

ABOUT ROLE MODELING

Role Models make a 6 month commitment to tutor a 3- or 4-year old child once a week in their home. Role Models bring and read donated books, have conversations, play letter and number games, practice writing, and engage in other creative activities that motivate children to learn while developing literacy, language, numeracy, and social-emotional skills. One lesson usually results in two-three hours of additional family learning.
