Our Mentors

In 2012-13, more than 670 individuals volunteered as reading mentors. Mentors are role models for reading and for life. Among our hundreds of volunteers, we count entrepreneurs, bankers, police officers, writers, lawyers, educators, retirees, business men and women, artists, students, and more. We appreciate their generosity, consistency, passion, and dedication.

Over the years, our mentors have volunteered more than 128,000 hours helping children in Vermont develop a love of reading. We appreciate their generosity, consistency, passion, and dedication.
