REMINDER: Raise Your Hand Tennessee is recruiting volunteers to read to, tutor and mentor children and youth

The Raise Your Hand Tennessee collaborative recruits volunteers to mentor and tutor children across the state

One of the many ways United Way of the Mid-South helps improve local education efforts is through our partnership in the Raise Your Hand Tennessee effort – a statewide collaboration recruiting volunteers to read to, tutor, and mentor children and youth.

Volunteering helps children enter school ready to succeed, read proficiently by 4th grade, make a successful transition in and out of middle school, and graduate from high school on time. The difference in a child’s success in school – and in life – could be YOU.

For more information on how to volunteer for this statewide initiative, visit the Raise Your Hand Tennessee website, dial our local 2-1-1 help line or contact Mary Graham at 615-791-1464. Thank you in advance for being a community volunteer!
