What is One to One?

One to One provides all members of our community (business, parents/guardians, faith-based and involved citizens) an opportunity to play an integral role in helping struggling students with the support they need to be successful in reading and math. 

One to One gives schools a committed trained cadre of volunteers dedicated to helping students achieve. One to One Coaches meet once a week, one-to-one with a first through third grade student who is struggling with reading and math.

One to One Parents as Partners provides a multigenerational approach by working with parents/guardians in the same school communities where One to One Coaches are tutoring students. Parents learn effective reading strategies to use with their child to help increase their growth in reading.

Return on Investment: Since 2008, One to One has increased participation from 4 to more than 30 partner schools and provided support for over 3000 students. On average, 88% of the students coached have made continuous progress in reading achievement.
