Help children become lifelong readers by empowering communities to provide individualized instruction with measurable results. The Reading Partners program focuses on children from low-income communities who are struggling with reading. Working with partner schools, the program offers children one-on-one tutoring with a caring volunteer who is dedicated to one child's success. Teachers refer English speaking, K-5 students who have fallen behind six months to two years in reading to Reading Partners. Once enrolled, students receive tutoring twice a week in 45-minute sessions. Students who were once struggling in many subjects not only become proud, confident readers, but also transform into children excited about learning and succeeding.
