Adams Elementary School lies at the heart of the Forest Park South-East neighborhood, where we were formerly located. Adams is part of the provisionally accredited St. Louis Public Schools district. We offer several programs in the school to support their staff + students.

Morning Reading

Youth work one-on-one with a volunteer on a weekly basis to reinforce their classroom literacy lessons. Students have an opportunity to practice their reading, vocabulary + comprehension skills. Volunteers are asked to volunteer at least once a week, to ensure that a helpful, healthy + effective relationship is built to empower each student toward success.


Teachers have a lot on their plates, + as much as they’d like to, they have a hard time meeting the needs of every child in the classroom. That’s where we come in. Each week we place volunteers in classrooms to assist teachers with day-to-day necessities. From tutoring students to running errands for teachers, our volunteers make it possible for teachers to fill the greatest necessities in their classrooms.
