ABOUT US

Reading Partners launched with the mission to expand opportunities for children in underserved communities by fostering a lifelong love of reading, developing strong literacy skills, and building the confidence and self-esteem critical to empowerment and community development. Reading Partners provides children with robust one-on-one reading support through a structured, research-based curriculum that engages students and provides basic building blocks to supplement their academic growth. On average, Reading Partners students gain 1.6 months of reading skills for every month in the program.

Working in partnership with teachers, schools, AmeriCorps, and community volunteers, Reading Partners has grown from serving 100 students in 2003 in northern California to serving over 11,000 students in 10 states and the District of Columbia.

  • Recruit and train community volunteers to work with children.
  • Recruit and train passionate AmeriCorps & VISTA members to serve the community and drive our mission.
  • Partner with high-need elementary schools to offer an effective program on campus.
  • Provide a way for volunteers to give a small amount of their time to make a huge difference in a child's life.
