Reading Partners is an education nonprofit that mobilizes community volunteers to provide one-on-one tutoring to struggling elementary student readers. Reading Partners is currently recruiting volunteers for the 2019-2020 school year to provide students in under-resourced, local elementary schools with the proven, individualized reading support they need to read at grade level by fourth grade. Reading is the foundation for all future learning.

The ability to read transforms lives and can empower children to reach their full potential. Research shows that when students can read at grade level by fourth grade, they have a greater opportunity to succeed in school and in life. With your help, students will gain the foundational skills they need to read at grade level. Each week, you will meet with your student to help them develop strong literacy skills and discover a passion for reading.

We will provide a structured curriculum, in-person training, and ongoing support to help your student thrive. Rigorous research has proven that Reading Partners significantly increases reading proficiency. No teaching experience required and anyone over the age of 14 can volunteer. Flexible Monday to Thursday volunteer times between 9am and 5pm at various school sites.
