Literacy is the foundation of learning. There are opportunities all around the city to help our kids achieve 3rd grade reading proficiency, a critical milestone for future success. Help young readers practice their literacy skills, and learn new ones, by engaging with them on a one-on-one basis. Want to volunteer over your lunch hour? How about after work? More interested in a one-time event? Great! We will match you with a student based on your schedule to read with once a week for up to one hour. Just being present and attentive is the most important part in catching these kids up to their grade-level. Creating a love of reading follows!
