SWAT Man and Boy

By volunteering only two hours one day a week, you can make a difference with Adams County’s Second and Third Grade students who are struggling to read!

  • Research shows that children who don’t read well entering 4th Grade face four times the likelihood of later dropping out of school.
  • Since we began in 2010, our before-and-after research shows that our caring assistance significantly boosts the literacy skills and confidence of the children in our program.
  • We have welcoming partnerships with many schools in Adams County District 1 (Mapleton) 12 (Fed. Heights-Northglenn-Thornton) 14 (Commerce City) 27J (Brighton) and 50 (Westminster).
  • The collective energies of caring, mature adults help boost the literacy skills of these children in Adams County schools.
  • Working in a team of three to five others will provide you companionship, cohesion, and a valuable support system.
  • You will also play a vital mentoring role, boosting students’ confidence and supporting good life skills and character development.
  • No prior is experience necessary —“Newbies” are welcome! Most of our tremendous Tutor-Mentors had never done anything like this before!
  • Our training and coaching will help you build the confidence to succeed as an RSVP-SWAT Tutor-Mentor.
  • Call us soon, and get on board for our trainings and placement in the Fall, or mid-year in January.
