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 2017-2018 school year for our program at P.S. 63 in the Bronx. 
For more information, go to and submit our volunteer form online.


No previous tutoring experience required

All ages 14+ can tutor: Being a volunteer with Reading Partners is a great opportunity for high school students, college students, working professionals, full-time parents, and retirees. People of all ages and backgrounds can be a valuable resource for young people learning to read.

To get started, you will attend a one hour orientation session at the reading center. Once you begin we ask for a minimum of 1-2 hours a week for at least one semester.
