Become a Reading Partner!

Reading Partners,  a nonprofit that combines the power of community volunteers with a highly effective, research-validated program that has helped thousands of children master the fundamental reading skills they need to succeed in school and beyond, is in need of volunteers to work with students at the Wheatley Education Campus in Trinidad, both this year and for next year. We are sharing this volunteer opportunity at their request.

Can you share just one hour each week with a student who is struggling to read? Become a reading partner today!

By becoming a reading partner and volunteering as little as one hour a week, you can help a child learn to read. Reading Partners provides an easy to use curriculum and on-site staff support to enable volunteers to be effective tutors. You bring your commitment and we’ll help you with everything else.

87% of fourth graders from low-income families in our nation’s capital do not read proficiently. Devoting just one hour each week to a student can make a tremendous impact. Last year, 97% of Reading Partners’ DC students improved their rate of learning in reading, and 87% narrowed their achievement gap. This year, Reading Partners is partnering with 15 local district and charter elementary schools and is opening opportunities for 750 students.

To sign up to be a reading partner, please fill out the form found at http://info.readingpartners.org/volunteer-in-washington-dc. If you have any questions, please call (202) 701-9110 or email volunteerDC@readingpartners.org.
