Maryland Reading Program

During the Fall 1997 semester, University of Maryland became one of the first twenty universities to participate in the America Reads Challenge. More than sixty student mentors were recruited and placed in the participating Prince George's County elementary schools to work with first and second grade students.

Maryland Math Program

Following the success of the America Reads Challenge, Maryland Math Program (formerly known as America Counts Program) was established in the 2000-2001 academic year. Mentors worked with fourth graders, and continued to strengthen the relationship between UMD and Prince George's County Public Schools. 

Family literacy

Maryland Family Literacy Program

During the 2004-2005 school year, Maryland Family Literacy Program (formerly known as Partners in Print) is the most recent addition to the Maryland Mentor Corps. Student presenters lead English and Spanish workshops at local schools and show parents how to help their children be confident, successful readers.
