Reading Partners: Volunteer Opportunity

Volunteer with Reading Partners Seattle, a literacy non-profit that teams up with elementary schools in under-served communities to provide one-on-one literacy tutoring to struggling elementary student readers. They do this by bringing in community volunteers to work with students twice a week for forty-five minutes. Anyone interested in education or willing to help change the life of a student is welcome to volunteer with them. No prior experience is necessary, and they provide initial and ongoing training support for our tutors.

They volunteer opportunities will be starting during the week of October 6th. Volunteer Coordinator Alexis Acciani will be on campus on Tuesday, September 30 if you would like to speak in person, or you may contact her by email or phone. She is happy to answer any and all questions you may have.

Here’s a link to their website for more information: http://readingpartners.org/seattle/about, as well as a recent NY Times article which highlights Reading Partners success in schools.
