What is L.O.V.E.?
Local Outreach Volunteer Educators are volunteers that work with elementary students in several Savannah-Chatham County's Title I Schools. Title I schools are those where at least 40% of the school's students are from low-income families.
Mentors provide one-on-one tutoring in reading and math to help students who are behind to achieve grade-level goals. Mentors are a caring and dependable presence in the lives of these children. They listen, encourage and help students believe they can learn and succeed in school and life.
L.O.V.E. believes that improving a child's education is the foundation for improving quality of life. Classroom teachers have little opportunity to work one-on-one with students. L.O.V.E. provides this benefit to students.
Our mission is simple but powerful: Helping Children Learn.
The Board of Education has determined that all students will be back in the classroom for the 2021-2022 school year. However, volunteers are still not allowed in schools and classrooms.
The L.O.V.E. Leadership Team is awaiting direction from the SCCPSS administrators. As soon as we have our plan on how to best support the children of Savannah, we will notify all mentors.
