Mano al Hermano's
Family Literacy Program Helps Children Succeed
Children receive weekly assistance throughout the school year as well as during summer vacation.
Feedback from the schools is positive: children are flourishing and parents are more involved!
We have 40 students on our waiting list - learn how you can volunteer.
Reach & Teach
We provide tutoring in the homes of the families which enables us to demonstrate good work habits and the importance of education in securing a better future. Tutors help the children once a week with their homework, school projects, and basic literacy skills. We also invite the parents to the schools for weekly adult English lessons.
Volunteers continue to visit the families once each week during the summer program featuring books and information about our local beach environment. Our eight week program closes with a field trip hosted by the NC Coastal Federation. The summer program keeps our children reading while exploring the world around them.
We need help! We currently have 35 dedicated tutors but need many more as we have 40 students on a waiting list. One hour a week offers help and hope to families who are trying to navigate our educational system. No Spanish necessary - most of our children speak English. We provide training and introductions to get you started.
