Fuerza Escolar is a mentoring program at Washington Elementary school that aims to improve the reading levels of 2-5th grade students. This is a very critical time for a child's development because they are transitioning to reading textbooks. It is Fuerza Escolar's mission to have college students as mentors to bring more light to the learning experience and encourages children to be eager to learn and read.

It requires a commitment of 20 hours per semester.
