Why volunteer as a literacy coach?

All children should have the resources to become literacy proficient! Generations Incorporated improves the literacy skills of young children through Grade 3 by engaging professionally trained older adult volunteers as literacy coaches. On average, students improve by 1.5 reading levels over the course of the school year.
