Connecting communities to classrooms
Whether you’re a passionate professional who’d like to lend a helping hand, a teacher or school looking for extra reading support for your classroom, or an organization committed to supporting literacy and making a difference in your community —there’s a way for you to get involved.
Volunteer as an online reading tutor
Team up with your colleagues and provide an entire classroom with support for their reading growth—in a way that fits into your busy life and schedule. You don’t even have to be in the classroom.
With tutoring for the 21st century, you can connect with kids in your community online to provide reading support instantly with super simple screen sharing and audio. Find out how you can support a student today.
Bring the Vello program to your classroom
The Vello program is a tutoring program for the 21st century brought to you by a group of United Ways and designed by real teachers who know what it takes to deliver results in the classroom.
United Way has brought together world class partners to ensure your teachers have a dedicated computer station for e-books and the Vello program, a local corporation supporting them, and a team of tutors ready to assist with extra reading support. Bring the Vello program to your classroom.
Succeeding the United Way
The Vello program is made possible by a group of United Ways. We’re on a mission to make sure every third grader reads at grade level across the country. Together, we can help more kids in more classrooms gain the reading skills they need to thrive in school and life.
Become part of the movement toward grade level reading and bring the Vello program to your community.
