Volunteer Tutors are a vital part of the New Haven Reads literacy tutoring program! Tutors provide one-on-one tutoring for students age 6-18 primarily in reading.

We provide all the materials and training you need! Volunteer as little as one hour a week and help us spread our mission of sharing the joy and power of reading.

We tutor September to June and also have a 6 week summer session! Volunteer for an hour a week or more.

About New Haven Reads:

New Haven Reads provides one-on-one tutoring for children who are struggling with reading. We also offer a kindergarten and pre-k program, special clubs, an SAT class and a middle school math camp all at no cost to participants. Currently, we are working with just under 600 students each week in three locations. We also provide free, gently used books to the public, teachers, and organizations.

Mission Statement

Our mission is "to share the joy and power of reading".


New Haven Reads provides an environment where children and adults have access to free books and children have access to tutoring to increase their literacy skills and academic performance.

We function as a community book bank distributing over 100,000 free books annually. Books are donated by individuals or community groups. We take books in good to excellent condition; we especially like children's books! We also pack boxes of books for social service agencies, homeless shelters, nursery schools, and individual schools and classrooms.

New Haven Reads offers free one-on-one after school tutoring to the children of Greater New Haven in grades K-12. We place emphasis on serving the most economically and educationally disadvantaged children and families who otherwise would not have access to these resources. This year over 530 students came in once or twice weekly for tutoring in reading with over 200 children still on the wait list.

We also have SAT prep class, Pre-K and Kindergarten early readiness programs, and workshops.


We'll work with your schedule.
