Reading Partners

RPCx

Volunteer just over an hour per week to empower a student through reading.

Reading Partners believes that our communities do better when all students have access to high-quality learning opportunities and the critical reading skills needed to prepare them for academic, social, and civic success. Reading Partners is seeking virtual volunteer tutors to work one-on-one with students this 2021-22 school year. Give a little over one hour per week. We offer flexible weekday session times. No experience is required, as we provide volunteers with a structured curriculum, training, and ongoing support to help you and your student succeed. Please note: while this opportunity is virtual, volunteers must reside in a proximal area to the region for student safety purposes.

Our students will inspire you.

About Reading Partners

Location:

National Office, 180 Grand Ave., Oakland, CA 94612, US

Mission Statement

Our mission is to help children become lifelong readers by empowering communities to provide individualized instruction with measurable results.

Description

Reading Partners is a national education nonprofit that partners with students, their families, schools, and communities to provide students with individualized literacy support and the foundational skills they need to read at grade level by fourth grade. We do this by training community volunteers to deliver one-on-one, literacy lessons, using our structured and easy to follow, evidence-based curriculum. Volunteer tutoring happens in-person via our Reading Partners Traditional program and virtually via our Reading Partners Connects program. Programming varies by region. We currently serve twelve regions, nationwide: Los Angeles, Silicon Valley, San Francisco Bay Area, Seattle, Denver, North Texas, Tulsa, Twin Cities, South Carolina, Washington DC, Baltimore, and New York.
