The mission of Read Alliance is to improve the educational trajectory of at-risk, early elementary students through one-to-one tutoring in foundational reading skills.
Established in 1999, Read Alliance is a non profit that improves the chances for academic success of the educationally and economically disadvantaged children we serve by ensuring they possess the reading skills necessary to read grade-appropriate text and catch up to their classmates.
Over the past 17 years, Read Alliance's intervention program has proved to make a significant difference in the academic success of the students it has served. Since our inception, nearly 15,000 early elementary students have recieved reading intervention through Read Alliance's one-to-one model delivered by 11,750 trained teen-aged tutors. Read Alliance pre- and post-assessment data has consistently shown that after just one program cycle, students who recieve Read Alliance intervention average a full year's growth in foundational reading skills as outlined in teh Common Core Learning Standards.
