The Book Mentor Project currently serves more than 700 Head Start and early childhood families in Champaign County. We are volunteering in Rantoul, Savoy, Champaign and Urbana Head Start sites and Unit 4's Pre-k classrooms. 

This project is successful because of our partnerships. Partnerships that include PNC, Head Start, and Unit 4. Partnerships with our mentors, our teachers, our community and our families. 

Through this project Illinois Public Media trains more than 60 teachers and 100 volunteers, works with 42 classrooms, and distributes more than 5,000 books each year.
