The Program is Simple

Through our Power Breakfast and Power Lunch programs, adult volunteers are paired with students at local elementary schools to promote reading for pleasure, to build the children’s self-confidence and enhance their self-esteem, and to serve as caring role models. The pairs meet weekly to share books and develop lasting relationships.

Since opening our first two sites in October 2000, EW! VT has grown to become Vermont’s largest mentoring organization. In the 2011-12 school year, we served 680 students at 22 schools! In 2012-13, we are running Power Lunch programs at 23 schools.
