Minnesota's education gap dims the future for too many children

A culture of success requires the engagement of a community that believes all children are important.

The Minnesota Council of Churches believes that access to quality education is a racial justice issue that the community can no longer ignore. That is why we are partnering with successful tutoring and mentoring programs to encourage members of congregations to become a tutor or mentor to a child who is not thriving at school.

Can you spare some time to create hope?

Volunteers throughout Minnesota are revitalizing their communities and re-engaging their neighborhood schools by becoming tutors and mentors to children who are not thriving in school. Research has shown that one-to-one relationships can make a real and lasting difference.  Volunteers are needed for 1 – 3 hours a week for the academic year. Training is provided and the partner programs provide support and curriculum for the tutor to work with the student.
