Reading Partners joined the Seattle educational landscape in 2014, when we first began placing community volunteers in low-income schools to help kids master basic reading skills. Our one-on-one tutoring model empowers students to succeed in reading and in life by engaging community volunteers to provide individualized, personal attention to each student in our program.

Without strong literacy skills, students face ongoing challenges in their education. Today, in Washington state, 3 out of 4 fourth graders from low-income families are reading below proficiency for their grade level.

By partnering with parents, teachers, school and community leaders in Seattle, we’re working toward a future where every child has the individualized support they need to become strong readers and lifelong learners.
