If children’s literacy skills fall behind then they will have a harder time completing school. 63% of Minnesota’s fourth graders are
NOT proficient at reading and students not proficient at reading by the beginning of third grade have only a 25% chance of catching
up over their entire public school experience(1). Also, sixth graders who fail math and/or English have only a 10-20% chance of
graduating high school on time (2).
What you will do: Assist Club Leaders during academic time as well as group activities for youth and teen clubs.

There are also plenty of benefits for volunteers including but not limited to:
 Helping kids rise to their full potential in literacy, learning and life!
 Resume Builder!
