Can you share one hour each week with a student who is struggling to read? Become a Reading Partner for the 2013-2014 school year!
Reading Partners is a nonprofit organization that recruits and trains community volunteers to provide one-on-one literacy tutoring to students who are struggling with reading. Tutors use a research-based curriculum, and program staff regularly assess students to benchmark and monitor student progress.
Devoting just one hour each week to a student can make a tremendous impact. Last year, 99% of Reading Partners’ DC students improved their rate of learning in reading, and 90% narrowed their achievement gap. Reading Partners has a reading center at Friendship Chamberlain (1345 Potomac Ave SE, on Capitol Hill) with sessions running roughly from 9 am to 5 pm, Monday-Thursday.
