Are you a non profit organization? Do Volunteers that are seniors in High School get their State required credit with your program? Please check with Foothill High School and other High Schools in the area to see if you can be a part of their program, if you aren't already.

Thank you.

I have been a Barton tutor now for a little over a year. It is an amazing program and I see so much improvement in reading skills in the students that I tutor. I only wish more Pleasanton schools would adopt this program!
