Everybody Wins! mentors read at school, over lunch, once a week for the school year, and often for several years. It’s a refreshing break from a busy week for the mentor, and a powerful force for good in a child’s life. Mentors promote reading for pleasure, build children’s self-confidence and self-esteem, and serve as caring role models.
Everybody Wins! Vermont is the largest mentoring program in the state, with over 600 mentors per year at 22 sites. Scroll down for a list of all active sites for 2020-2021.
