Volunteer Tutor with Student
One of RSVP's volunteers tutoring a third grader in Harrisburg School District.

RSVP is expanding its America Reads program in the Capital Area, Perry County, Carlisle and Shippensburg in Cumberland County and Chambersburg in Franklin County. Local school districts are in desperate need of reading tutors. Almost 50% of all students in public schools are reading below grade level proficiency. Many of these students come from low-income/at-risk families; our volunteers help break the ties between poverty and illiteracy by tutoring a child! RSVP tutors visit schools during the school day and work one on one with students (kindergarten through third grade) to improve literacy. Research shows that students who demonstrate grade-level proficiency by the end of third grade have much greater success in later years of schooling.
