Be a Hero: Volunteer with Reading Partners!
December 26, 2019

Become a Reading Partner today!

Reading Partners is a nonprofit organization that recruits and trains community volunteers to provide one-on-one literacy tutoring to students who are struggling with reading. Tutors use a research-based curriculum, and program staff regularly assess students to benchmark and monitor student progress.

Devoting just one hour each week to a student can make a tremendous impact. Last year, 99% of Reading Partners’ DC students improved their rate of learning in reading, and 90% narrowed their achievement gap. This year, Reading Partners is partnering with 11 local district and charter elementary schools and is opening opportunities for 600 students living in economically disadvantaged communities.
