St. Stephen's Youth Programs419 Shawmut AvenueBoston, MA 02118


St. Stephen’s Youth Programs work to ensure multifaceted activities that allow for our youth to have choice and to gain skills beyond what they are working on in their classrooms. Research has shown that reading improves cognitive development, boosts spelling abilities, and improves writing skills. We have developed a reading program that fosters a love of reading through free voluntary reading and direct instruction.

Volunteers will be trained to use the curriculum and support students and their reading development. Direct instruction occurs by a 1:1 partner pairing in which volunteers will read with their students in an encouraging environement that makes reading fun so that students will want to read more.
