Become a School Partner
Want to bring Reading Partners to your school?
Contact us if you are interested in bringing Reading Partners to a school near you.
We partner with low-income schools in geographic centers throughout the U.S. To qualify for our direct service, a majority of the students enrolled at the school must qualify for free/reduced lunch. You can learn more or request to bring our program to a school by completing and submitting our School Partner form.
What Reading Partners offers:
- Working with school leaders, Reading Partners transforms a classroom into a reading center, complete with a library and teaching tools managed by a full-time staff or AmeriCorps member;
- Reading Partners collaborates with teachers to identify students reading one month or more behind grade level, and provides them with individualized literacy instruction;
- Reading Partners recruits and trains community volunteers to provide weekly one-on-one literacy tutoring using its research-based curriculum, a series of structured lesson plans that progress from phonics instructions for younger students to higher order comprehension strategies for older students.
