RSVP: Orientation to be a Reading Partner
Reading Partners is a national education nonprofit dedicated to improving students’ reading skills. We work in Title I elementary schools to support students from low income communities who are reading 6 months to 2.5 years below grade-level. We recruit and train community volunteers to work one-on-one with students for at least an hour a week, following a structured, research-based curriculum.
WHAT: Join us for a one-stop shop orientation event to become a Reading Partners volunteer! Attendees will get a live scan done – free of charge, an orientation & can be scheduled to start volunteering on the spot!
WHY: Becoming a volunteer Reading Partner gives you the opportunity to share your knowledge and experience, and become a mentor, friend, and positive role model in the life of a child.
