About Us

Sonoma County employees participate in this one-to-one literacy tutoring program where employees tutor 1st, 2nd, and 3rd grade students at local participating schools through a partnership with United Way of the Wine Country. 

On January 8, 2013, the Board of Supervisors approved a partnership with United Way’s Schools of Hope Program based on the Board’s Ad Hoc Committee Mentoring, Youth & Education recommendation. Schools of Hope is a proven, early intervention literacy program for children who are struggling to read and is recognized as an Upstream Initiative, Tier 3 program. The program model combines one-to-one tutoring, family engagement, and program evaluation, resulting in an increase in the County’s reading achievement. The implementation of this program accomplishes the County’s goals of a “safe, healthy, & caring community” and “investing in the future.”
