Current Mission - Reading Partners, Nurture Young Minds

Since 2012 we have grown a viable and sustainable volunteer program through Reading Partners that focuses on early childhood education and reading. In the first year, 92% of students accelerated their rate of learning in reading and 75% narrowed their literacy gaps with peers reading at grade level. By the middle of the 2013-2014 school year, our reading tutors had already donated over 940 volunteer hours to kids. Below are the guideline parameters we work within to continue to grow our support of kids in our community…


1. 100% CHILD FOCUSED... all programs will focus on what works for kids' educational success

2. SET HIGH EXPECTATIONS... with big goals, we can make a big difference in kids' lives

3. OBSTACLES, BUT NO EXCUSES... there are no easy answers, but our approach is "Whatever it Takes"

4. FOCUS ON THE MOST NEEDY... Let's take on the biggest challenge and set a tone...

5. YEAR ROUND... Children's needs don't take the summer off...

6. PARTNER FOR SUCCESS... leverage what works, co-opt the best programs and ideas

7. INVOLVE OLD SOUL EMPLOYEES... Old Soul is our engine, Sacramento Has Soul won't drive to the highest heights without them

8. DEFINABLE GOALS... Kids reading on grade level, perfect attendance, summer access and participation, etc...
