Each Scholar volunteers at least 50 hours during the academic year. Sessions can include everything from reading aloud to tutoring and mentoring younger children of color.

This program has grown from 100 children served in 1989/1990 to 7,500 children served each year. Page Scholars have volunteered in more than 300 Minnesota schools and community organizations and have provided over 420,000 hours of community service.


Our Expert Partners have hosted Page Scholars at their organizations for many years and annually participate in the Foundation’s Page Scholar Seminar in August.  The work of each organization and program directly align with the mission of the Page Education Foundation.  Expert Partners are individually selected by the Page Education Foundation because of their efforts to go above and beyond in providing quality volunteer opportunities for Page Scholars and they are listed as priority sites for Page Scholars’ volunteer placement.
