What We Do

Reading Partners empowers students to succeed in reading and in life by recruiting and training community volunteers to provide one-on-one literacy tutoring. We work with under-resourced elementary schools to support students who are reading up to 2.5 years below grade level. We place a full time staff at each partner school ensuring volunteer tutors are trained and supported, students are empowered and reach success and day-to-day operations are smooth and not an additional burden to our schools. We currently work at Stoney Creek Elementary, Oakdale Elementary, Sugar Creek Charter School, Sterling Elementary, Tuckaseegee Elementary, JW Grier Academy and Nathaniel Elementary/Morehead STEM Academy (combined site).
