Volunteer in Washington DC

Thank you for your interest in becoming a volunteer reading partner. While all volunteer slots for the current school year are filled, you can still sign up if you are interested in volunteering in the 2022-23 school year.

Once you review the volunteer requirements and complete the sign-up process, a member of the Reading Partners team will reach out over the summer with updates about volunteer needs, the tutor orientation process, and how to get started.

The Reading Partners Connects Program

Reading Partners will follow all COVID-19 school safety requirements and is prepared to deliver online volunteer opportunities aligned with local guidelines. Reading Partners Connects is an online tutoring platform that connects volunteers with students in an online environment using Reading Partners’ evidence-based curriculum. Content integrates our trusted curriculum lessons into innovative presentations to optimize student engagement. Lessons also incorporate social-emotional learning (SEL) opportunities through relationship-building with tutors. While Reading Partners is currently implementing only Reading Partners Connects online tutoring in the DC Area, we will be ready to re-implement in-person tutoring options once it is permissible for volunteers to return to school campuses.
