Boston: Free Reading Tutoring for Your Child. Volunteer to Solve the Literacy Crisis in America

Save to Favorites

American Youth Literacy Foundation

3 reading is forever

With COVID impacting the lives of so many children, the American Youth Literacy Foundation has decided to once again offer free tutoring nationwide to a limited number of 6-9 year old children, via distance learning (Google Meet).

If you have a son or daughter ages 6-9 who can't read, volunteer to have them tutored 1-on-1 by a high school or middle school student virtually, via Google Meet.

Your child will learn how to read in 12 hours using the patented, FUNetix 12 Hour Reading App.

We have high school and middle school tutors who are eager to walk through the FUNetix app with your child via Google Meet. If you are interested, please let us know and we will pair you up. Tutoring is free. Students earn community service hours and the American Youth Literacy Foundation is an all volunteer organization, (501 c 3 charitable non-profit) founded in 2008 and dedicated to ensuring that every American child learns how to read before they finish 3rd grade.

The app is free and available in the App Store and Google Play. The tutoring is free. Check out www.FUNetix.org to learn more or sign up here to be paired with a tutor. We have limited availability but we're adding tutors every day.

Don't let COVID stop your child from learning how to read, when they can learn how to read in 12 hours from the comfort of your own home.

We look forward to working with you!
