Everybody Wins! Vermont: Reading together for success that lasts a lifetime
Everybody Wins! Vermont is a literacy mentoring program. This year, 1,200 children and mentors will read together for an hour each week at lunch in 21 schools. Now that is truly a power lunch!
In Everybody Wins! sites around Vermont, adult volunteer mentors are carefully matched with students at their local elementary schools to read together, have conversations, and make enduring connections weekly over lunch. Our Power Lunch program sets children up to love reading and succeed in life. It supports local schools and communities by connecting community members to their schools. Mentors tell us that reading day is their favorite day of the week!
