Imagine a future where all children have the reading skills to reach their full potential. Join Reading Partners Baltimore, and help empower young readers in our city! Reading Partners Baltimore is looking for volunteer tutors to help students become lifelong readers.
Volunteers needed to tutor students through Reading Partners. Reading Partners is a national nonprofit that pairs community volunteers and elementary school students who are reading below grade level in Baltimore city. This proven early literacy organization provides volunteer-led, individualized reading support to students in under-resourced public elementary schools.
Reading Partners volunteers are matched one-on-one with students in kindergarten through fourth grade who are reading anywhere from a few months to two and a half years below grade level. Volunteers utilize an easy-to-follow, individualized lesson plan each week, specific to their students’ needs in order to meet them at their level and help build both literacy skills and confidence.
Commitment: Volunteers are asked to commit to a minimum of once a week with the same student for the duration of the academic school year, during the school day.
Location: in-person at various city schools (Baltimore City/Downtown)
Restrictions: Volunteers must be 18 years old. In-person fingerprinting through Baltimore City Public Schools required (paid for by Reading Partners). Training provided. All volunteers must be fully vaccinated against COVID-19.
