HELP STUDENTS MAKE UP LOST GROUND IN THE FALL!

Less than 35% of fourth graders in Boston Public Schools can read proficiently, rendering them more likely to experience a myriad of other risk factors. Getting involved early can help children increase their reading skills so they can become strong readers before exiting third grade, greatly improving their chances of lifelong success!

 Be a part of our VIRTUAL volunteer team to combat this literacy crisis!

Tutor students in reading through video conferencing. We provide extensive training to prepare you for success! No previous teaching experience is required. You will use digital books to tutor a student one-on-one (in 1st, 2nd or 3rd grade) following a structured 30 minute tutoring format.

You work with the same students every week to develop a strong relationship with the students, serve as a mentor, and see meaningful improvement in their reading skills. (Once social distancing restrictions are lifted, we would be happy to place you at one of our partner schools or after-school clubs to conduct in person tutoring sessions. You can also continue to tutor virtually.)
