About the organization

The Schools of Hope AmeriCorps Project is a dynamic community partnership which has developed an evidence-based model of tutoring intervention fueled by impassioned AmeriCorps members and committed community volunteers. SOH began in 1995 as a civic journalism project that developed into a unique collaboration of the United Way of Dane County, Madison Metropolitan School District (MMSD), and is also supported by the Sun Prairie Area School District.

Its mission is to provide literacy tutoring support to improve the academic achievement of kindergarten through fifth grade students.
