Senior Scholar Project 

Help children learn.

Contact us at 970-243-9839.
The purpose of the Senior Scholar Project is to help school children learn.  We connect seniors wishing to help, with students needing help.  Volunteers work under the direction of school teachers in Mesa County public and private schools providing one-to-one academic assistance.  Success within this nurturing environment, it is believed, will help children build self-esteem and confidence.
