Refer a friend

Every new volunteer referred to Reading Partners means at least one new student will receive the one-on-one support they need to build lifelong skills for future success. If each volunteer refers just one friend, we will meet the needs of all of the students on our waitlist! Thank you for spreading the word about Reading Partners to your friends and family through our refer a friend initiative.

Dear friends and family,

I’m writing to share a wonderful opportunity with you. For the past [amount of time], I’ve been volunteering with Reading Partners—a nonprofit organization that matches community volunteers with students in need of reading support. They provide all of the necessary training and on-site support, so no experience is needed to tutor a student.

Here’s how it works: I visit the school once a week to tutor my student for 45 minutes. During each tutoring session, I follow a standardized, easy-to-use lesson plan which guides me and my student through the session.

The program is evidence-based and has seen wonderful results in students’ reading progress. Last year, 90 percent of Reading Partners’ kindergarten through second-grade students mastered the foundational reading skills needed to read at grade level.

If you are looking for a meaningful way to get involved and make a difference, I hope you’ll consider joining me as a reading partner! There are still many students on the waiting list. Visit the Reading Partners website to learn more at

Newsletter blurb

Did you know 4 out of every 5 of our nation’s low-income fourth graders are not reading at grade level? This means many students are falling behind at the critical transition point in their educations. The good news is, volunteers across the country are joining together to take action and support students’ literacy education.

The Reading Partners program offers a unique opportunity for volunteers to commit one hour a week (or more) to tutor an elementary school student in reading. Reading partners provides training, on-site support, and an easy-to-use curriculum that sets volunteers up for success. The program and its volunteer reading partners are proven to help students improve their reading skills. Yet, more volunteers are needed to meet the needs of students in our community.
