SF Bay Area

Reading Partners has been a part of the educational landscape in the San Francisco Bay Area since the program was founded in 1999. 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.

The Bay Area enjoys the highest per capita GDP in the world—$74,815, higher than London and Singapore—and houses a number of institutes of higher learning. However, in the counties we serve (Alameda and San Francisco) over two thirds (71 percent) of incoming fourth graders from low income communities can not read at grade level.

By partnering with parents, teachers, school and community leaders in the Bay Area, we’re working toward a future where all children have the individualized support they need to become strong readers and lifelong learners.
