Connect your child to free volunteer reading mentors who care.


United Way’s FREE Vello virtual literacy program is coming out of the classroom to students at home for the first time this summer! The Vello summer program pairs children with trained virtual reading volunteer mentors at designated times, twice weekly, from June 22 – August 28. Together, students and volunteers read e-books using simple screen sharing and audio. Vello also provides students with 24/7 access to an extensive 50,000 book RAZ-Plus e-library for themselves and their family members, helping form valuable reading habits in and out of the classroom. In order to sign your child up before sessions begin, please fill out the Participation Form below today. The last day to sign up will be Monday, July 13!
