Support Local Kids, Become a Reading Partner

Do you enjoy working with kids? Want to make an impact in your community?

Reading Partners needs volunteers like you to provide students in under-resourced elementary schools in your community with the proven, individualized reading support they need to read at grade level by fourth grade.

Reading is the foundation for all future learning. The ability to read transforms lives and can empower children to reach their full potential. Research shows that when students can read at grade level by fourth grade, they have a greater opportunity to succeed in school and in life.

With your help, we can equip students with the foundational skills they need to read at grade level. Each week, you will meet one-on-one with your student every week to help them develop strong literacy skills and discover a passion for reading. We’ll provide a structured curriculum, in-person training, and ongoing support to help your student thrive. Rigorous research has proven that Reading Partners significantly increases reading proficiency.

No teaching experience required and anyone over the age of 14 can volunteer. Flexible Monday to Thursday volunteer times between 9am and 5pm at school sites across Seattle.

Tutoring has ended for the current school year, but we look forward to having you join us in the fall once programming resumes! A member of our team will be in touch with you shortly to discuss our timeline and get you started on the next steps to becoming a tutor in the 2016-17 school year.
