A child's third grade reading scores can predict with 70% accuracy the likelihood they will graduate from high school. Early literacy impacts all aspects of a child's life from academic performance to self-confidence and enthusiasm for learning.
Reading Partners provides an opportunity and a space for volunteers from the community to give a fraction of their time each week to tutor an elementary school student one-on-one in reading using a structured and easy-to-follow curriculum.
With just 1 hour per week, you can make a huge difference in the lives of children who have fallen behind in reading. One-on-one instruction at the student's reading level provides the opportunity for individualized academic attention and a healthy learning relationship with you, the volunteer. Volunteers are supported at all times by Reading Partners school site coordinators and staff.
70% of our tutors have little or no education experience. Anyone over the age of 14 can volunteer with us! We are recruiting volunteers for the 2015-2016 school year.
