Reading Partners In Urgent Need of Volunteers

Originally posted by Holy City Sinner

Reading Partners, an educational nonprofit dedicated to ensuring that all elementary school students have the foundational literacy skills necessary to be successful in school and beyond, today put out an urgent call for community volunteers. With January being National Mentoring Month, it is the perfect time for caring adults to provide support to children in our community.

The organization is searching for an additional 125 volunteers in order to deliver essential literacy tutoring to students who have been referred to Reading Partners by their teachers.  Volunteer tutors follow an easy-to-use, evidence-based curriculum and absolutely no teaching experience is necessary.

Reading Partners CEO Adeola Whitney said, “If you knew that spending one hour per week working with a child could help positively impact their reading trajectory, would you do it? At Reading Partners we want to ensure that every student has the opportunity to develop foundational reading skills that will last a lifetime.”

Interested volunteers can sign up for an upcoming orientation by visiting or by calling 843-860-3915.
