An estimated 80 RSVP volunteers which 60 are unduplicated volunteers will serve. They will tutor or mentor 160 students which include teens, elementary, and head start children at local schools or libraries to improve their skills so they will be proportioned to the next grade level and school readiness. The RSVP volunteers will also be positive role models to the children and in return help them with their behavioral, social, and emotional problems. There are 21 stations which they will network with such as: the four county Board of Educations, Head Start Programs, and Craigsville, Ronceverte, and Summersville Public Libraries. The primary focus area of this project is Education. At the end of the 12-month performance period 60% of the children will have improved their skills to be promoted to the next grade level and will be school ready. The CNCS federal investment of $ 81,394 will be supplemented by $35,810.
