HOSTS (Help One Student To Succeed) is a nationally recognized mentoring program that pairs a student who needs help in reading with a community member who wants to make a difference in a student’s life. With help from volunteer mentors, students receive the extra attention and encouragement they need to be better readers and better students. The program is housed on the Brandon Elementary campus. Schedules can be adjusted to meet the mentor’s needs and only requires 30 minutes per week. It’s a wonderful program that is very organized, doesn’t require a lot of time, and the benefits are enormous to the mentor and the student alike.
