One-2-One Tutoring

Volunteers provide weekly tutoring and classroom assistance for elementary students to help improve reading, other academic skills, and self-esteem.

Since 1995, 18,645 children impacted.

This year 324 students benefited:
52 students received tutoring/classroom assistance, and 324 summer literacy kits provided to students.

Assistance League of Southeastern Michigan’s Legacy of Literacy book drive was extremely successful. An initiative of National Assistance League, the Michigan chapter collected 2,648 books, benefitting our philanthropic programs such as: Operation School Bell, Wee Help Kits, and One-2-One Tutoring. Our book drive also serviced community programs such as Neighborhood House Blast Off 2 School, Children’s Center of Detroit, several Michigan tri-county schools, and the Rochester Hills Public Library. The book drive committee, under the chairmanship of Barb Roller, had the unique experience of accepting a donation of books from Bob Lytle, local Rochester, MI pharmacist, and children’s author. We aided in distributing class sets of his various book titles to schools whose students were recipients of the Operation School Bell program. To date, Bob has donated 685 books to our programs. The gift of books continues to bring joy for reading to many students.
