About

Reading Partners is a national education nonprofit dedicated to improving students’ reading skills. We work in Title I elementary schools to support students from low-income communities who are reading 6 months to 2.5 years below grade-level. We recruit and train community volunteers to work one-on-one with students for at least an hour a week, following a structured, research-based curriculum.

Join us for an orientation event to become a Reading Partner. The event will include a live scan (free of charge), orientation, and volunteer sign up.
