Volunteer Opportunity posted by: Reading Partners
Posted on: September 18, 2013
Reading Partners connects passionate volunteers with struggling readers to help students strengthen their literacy skills, build confidence, and discover a passion for reading. You can be a mentor, a leader, and an educator with no prior experience in the classroom.
Be someone's hero. Over the past decade, volunteers like you have helped more than 10,000 students become excellent readers using a structured, easy-to-use curriculum. Our volunteers become so much more than reading partners. By sharing their knowledge and experience, tutors become mentors, friends, and positive role models in the life of a child.
Have fun. Change a life. Tutoring in the Reading Partners program makes a powerful impact in a child's life. Working one-on-one with a student is a fun, effective way to change someone's life—maybe your own.
