• Reading Partners

Unlocking student potential by raising reading achievement.


Reading Partners is a nonprofit whose mission is to help children become lifelong readers by empowering community volunteers to provide individualized instruction that produces measurable results.

By following our easy to use and research-based curriculum, our community volunteers provide twice-weekly, one-on-one literacy tutoring to kindergarten to fourth-grade students who are struggling with reading.

During the 2016-17 school year, we are serving 975 students at 20 Title I elementary schools across Washington, DC. To learn more, visit our website.

Interested in volunteering?

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 evidence-based, easy-to-use curriculum and on-site staff support to enable volunteers to be effective tutors. You bring your commitment, and Reading Partners will help you with everything else.

Devoting just one hour each week to a student can make a tremendous impact. Last year, 87% of Reading Partners’ DC students met or exceeded their year-end literacy growth goals. This year, Reading Partners is partnering with 20 local district and charter elementary schools to open opportunities for 975 students across Washington, DC.

To sign up to be a reading partner, please fill out the form found here.  If you have any questions, please call (443) 794-2225 or email volunteerDC@readingpartners.org.
