Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
Reading Power is a literacy tutoring program serving low-achieving children attending elementary schools. Our mission is to accelerate children's literacy learning and to develop in them a love of reading and writing. We accomplish this goal through an independent tutoring program working in partnership with schools. We believe that all children deserve to reach their intellectual potential.
Since 2003, over 2,000 students who were struggling to read and write have received one-to-one tutoring to accelerate their learning and changed their lives in incalculable ways. Our success is documented both quantitatively and qualitatively. In addition to tutoring, Reading Power serves as an advocate for our students, distributes books for children to own, keeps in contact with parents, and works closely with school officials.
The future is filled with promise and challenge. More tutors will be recruited and, in time, more schools will be added. The coming years will build upon our prior success as we expand and fine tune each facet of what is already an excellent program.
