Reading Partners recruits community volunteers to work with students from kindergarten through 5th grade who have fallen behind in reading. Over the course of the year, these trained volunteers tutor students twice a week for 45 minutes, utilizing a highly structured and research-validated curriculum.
On average, students gain 1.6 months of skills for every month in the Reading Partners program. Reading Partners’ Books and Bagels event gives corporate volunteers, community members, and service groups the opportunity to experience the Reading Partners program firsthand and provide crucial literacy services to a student.
