About

Test results show that 58.1 percent of Philadelphia’s 4th graders are not proficient in reading.

Let’s change that together.

Philly Reading Coaches is helping students in grades K-3 become better, motivated and confident readers.
Committed volunteers - who can be as young as 13 years old - will spend a minimum of one hour once a week reading with a student, helping them to gain confidence in their reading abilities and discover the love of reading.

This January we paired over 100 youth with Reading Coaches, providing fun and child-guided reading experiences that help build reading skills and motivation.

In Fall 2018, we will be expanding to over 20 school district, recreation center, library and PAL center sites and we need caring, committed volunteers like you!
