UNITED WAY & IN2BOOKS

 

Thanks to a new partnership between United Way and In2Books, YOU can help young people become better readers. In2Books is an award-winning eMentoring program that connects 3rd to 6th grade students across the U.S. with caring adult "eMentors." It's a great way for busy people to make an impact in the community.


How it Works:

Over the course of the school year, volunteer eMentors read five student-selected books and discuss the texts with the student mentee via guided online letters. The adult-student pen pal relationship provides essential support for the development of student's reading, writing and critical thinking skills. This evidence-based program is designed to meet Common Core State Standards and is proven to increase literacy rates and test scores in schools nationwide.
