ARISE2Read is a serving ministry focusing on 3rd grade literacy. Volunteer mentors, from throughout the community, assist 2nd grade students in strengthening their reading skills by devoting one hour per week mentoring to two students. Using the team read approach, students receive one-on-one coaching twice a week, focusing on simple, but essential, sight words and phrases.
ARISE2Read mentors give freely of their time and attention, two priceless commodities that allow children to thrive. The quality time children and mentors spend together builds close relationships, providing opportunities to show care and compassion to the youngest and most vulnerable of God’s children.
