Being A Mentor

For EWVT! by Jim Olinger on Vimeo.

As a reading mentor you will be matched with one student at the school of your choice (Power Breakfast program also available at selected schools). Each week you will spend one lunch hour reading with your student while you both eat lunch. You provide the inspiration to help a child develop a love of reading that will last a lifetime, and EW! VT provides the books and support to all mentors!

Reading Mentor Job Description

Here’s what reading mentors do:

  • Build relationships by talking about shared interests, by reading aloud with their students, and by being positive and consistent

  • Make a commitment to volunteer for one school year; mentors are encouraged to continue reading with the same child for more than one year if possible

  • Receive ongoing support from EW! VT

  • Provide structure for the Power Lunch by helping their students select reading materials, keeping their students engaged, and encouraging questioning and conversation

  • Stay with the student during each session and escort them to their next activity after each Power Lunch
