About

One hour. One student. That is all it takes to make a difference! Children who live in low-income housing and read below grade level are 6x more likely to drop out of high school. You can change a child's life by becoming a Reading Coach.

Phoenix Family's HIKE Reading Program provides one-on-one reading tutoring to children living in low-income housing. Volunteers are needed now to help these students build their confidence and reading ability.

No preparation necessary-we provide the lessons and materials. You just come ready to make a connection with a struggling student. One hour a week or less is all it takes-could you be the one who makes a difference?
