The America Reads/Counts program at UMass Dartmouth places university students in community centers, local elementary schools, and preschools to provide classroom support as well as tutor and mentor struggling and at-risk students. Through continued training, tutor supervision, evaluation, and teacher collaboration, our America Reads/Counts program strives to:
- increase the level of mathematics understanding of local students from pre-K through 8th grade
- increase the reading levels of local children from pre-K to fifth grade
- increase university students’ involvement in the community
- strengthen the partnership between the university and the local community
