Vello Overview 07/08/2019

This month, school starts for many children. Most students will pick up where they left off and easily pass standardized tests. But for children in poverty, many lack the resources to pass the reading proficiency test in third grade, which makes them at risk for falling behind and getting held back. We can't let children fall behind.

Join us in our efforts to break this cycle and give children the opportunity to reach their full potential. Visit www.Vello.org to learn about how you can get involved with Vello.

Tools and platforms alone cannot impact a classroom. But the power of connecting passionate professionals to students in real-time can. That's why we are so grateful for all of our sponsors. Because of them, our kids are able to read by fourth grade and grow into successful professionals. Thank you sponsors! Can't wait to create more Vello magic this school year! 😄
