Volunteer opportunity description

Reading Partners provides an opportunity and a space for volunteers from the community to give a fraction of their time each week to tutor an elementary school student one-on-one in reading using a structured and easy-to-follow curriculum.

 

With just 1 hour a week, you can make a huge difference in the lives of children who have fallen behind in reading and are at risk of falling further. One-on-one instruction at the student's reading level provides the opportunity for individualized academic attention and a healthy learning relationship with you, the volunteer. Volunteers are, in turn, supported at all times by Reading Partners school site coordinators and staff.

 

We are recruiting for the 2013-2014 school year for our program at P.S. 86 in Queens. 

For more information, go to http://info.readingpartners.org/volunteer-in-new-york and submit our volunteer form online.
