There are many simple ways that you can help to make a meaningful difference in the life of children. In addition to the specific activities below, tutors should also discuss opportunities with their site coordinator. Many Reading Partners regions host local activities where volunteer assistance is needed.
Recruit more tutors
Every new tutor means another student has a reading partner. You can help us spread the word and build our tutor community by referring your friends to volunteer. We also welcome connections to your networks, such as places of worship, employers, civic organizations or more.
Make a financial donation
In communities across the country, we’re working everyday to ensure every child has the reading skills they need to unlock a bright future. You can help a child become a strong reader by making a donation to support Reading Partners. When you donate to Reading Partners, your dollars go toward transforming an unused classroom into a bustling reading center. Here’s how:
- $5,000 supports five students’ participation in the Reading Partners program for one year
- $2,500 stocks a reading center with a computer, library seating, and literacy games
- $1,000 supports one student’s participation in the Reading Partners program for one year
- $500 supports student assessment tools and resources for a reading center
