Reading Partners is a nonprofit organization that recruits and trains community volunteers to provide one-on-one literacy tutoring to students who are struggling with reading. Tutors use a research-based curriculum, and program staff regularly assess students to benchmark and monitor student progress.
Devoting just one hour each week to a student can make a tremendous impact. Last year, 99% of Reading Partners’ DC students improved their rate of learning in reading, and 90% narrowed their achievement gap.
Contact: (443) 794-2225 or volunteerDC@readingpartners.org.
Through your financial support, big or small, we can help the next intern on Capitol Hill secure
a scholarship, fellowship or simply navigate through the beltway through IMPACT-led roundtable discussions, networking receptions, and other engaging events.
