The AmeriCorps Promote program is funded by the Coachella Valley Unified School District and California Volunteers to meet the needs of students in grades first through third who are not reading at grade level. Members create bonds that far surpass reading intervention and create a life-long mentorship. Twenty-eight volunteers work with over 300 at risk English learners and volunteer 1730 community hours. The members serve as community leaders, student mentors, academic tutors, and shape their futures to be leaders in the community.
