Mission Statement


We envision a future where all children in the US have the reading skills necessary to reach their full potential. Our mission is to help children become lifelong readers by empowering communities to provide individualized instruction with measurable results.

Description


Reading Partners is dedicated to unlocking the skills of students who struggle with reading. We provide one-on-one reading instruction to elementary school students reading below grade level to help them succeed in school and in life. Reading is the foundation for future learning. In order to learn, students must be able to read. Without reading, kids don’t have an equitable chance at success. We believe that regardless of their environment, given the right support and resources, all kids can learn to read. A national 501(c)3 nonprofit, we partner with under-resourced schools and engage volunteer reading partners (community tutors) to help students who struggle with reading unlock and develop the foundational skills they need to succeed in school and in life. An evidence-based and community-driven organization, we recruit and train volunteers to work one-on-one with students for 45 minutes twice a week, following a structured, research-based curriculum. Our program model works and is backed by evidence-based research which proves that our students make significant gains in reading. On average, Reading Partners’ students more than double their rate of learning while in the program.
