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 2018-19 school year, we are serving 925 students at 19 Title I elementary schools across Washington, DC. To learn more, visit our website.

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, 88% of Reading Partners DC students met or exceeded their end-of-year literacy growth goals.
