Reading Partners' mission is to help children become lifelong readers by empowering communities.
Reading Partners is a nonprofit organization that provides literacy intervention programs at elementary schools in low-income communities. At each school, our program transforms a classroom into a Reading Center, and recruits community volunteers from all walks of life to serve as one-on-one tutors for struggling student readers.
More than simply reading with a child, our volunteers follow a proven, structured curriculum to help students learn specific skills necessary to become proficient readers. Its simple, and it works. Each lesson comes with step-by-step instructions and materials. A trained site coordinator is always available to answer questions, assist with the materials, and solve problems.
