How does it work?

010edited

Trained volunteer reading tutors are matched with children in grades k-3 who are identified by school literacy specialists as needing additional help with reading. These are the students who do not receive other intervention and would otherwise fall through the cracks.

The tutor and child meet to read together for 30 minutes per student each week during the school year, and most of our tutors work with at least 3 students per visit. This is a significant commitment BUT your time and effort will make a lifetime of difference.

Program and student data is recorded and accessed throughout the year using standardized MAP test scores.
