is looking for adults to become reading mentors for its Power Lunch program, geared by Everybody Wins! Atlanta.

Held at eight different schools in the metro Atlanta area, the program aims to help students with reading. Volunteers will meet with the students once or twice a week, either on Tuesday or Thursday, and read aloud from books provided by the program.

"For the past 15 years, Everybody Wins! Atlanta has been devoted to improving the reading skills of students who are reading below grade level," according to a flyer of the program. "The Power Lunch program is easy, rewarding, and has improved the academic performance of students who are struggling in their reading skills."

This year Everybody Wins! is offering a training program for being a reading mentor, too. Volunteers are matched to a specific student and each lunch session is 30 minutes.

Stripling's Power Lunch Orientation is being held on Tuesday, Oct. 16, at 2 p.m.

For more information or to sign up for the program, contact Jill Daly at jdaly@everybodywinsatlanta.org at 404-745-3584.
