You can make a difference in the life of a child in just one hour a week.Reading Partners connects passionate volunteers with struggling readers to help students build strong literacy skills, gain confidence, and discover a passion for reading. You can be a mentor, a leader, and a friend to student in need. We need your help to ensure we are serve as many students as possible in the 2013-2014 school year!

Reading Partners is a national education nonprofit that works with elementary schools to support students who are reading 6 months to 2.5 years below grade-level. We are one of the most successful one-on-one reading non-profits in the U.S., on average helping our students double their rate of learning - you can see more about us here with our brand new video.

Reading Partners provides our tutors with:

A highly-effective and easy-to-follow curriculum

  • In-person training and on-site support from a full-time staff member

  • The opportunity to help a student double their rate of learning

This year we will serve over 360 students across 9 Tulsa elementary schools and need your help to make a difference in the life of a child- be a hero! As we begin recruiting volunteers for Tulsa, we want to make this easy:

  • No Formal Education Experience Required

  • Volunteers come from all walks of life- high school to retirees

  • Volunteers commit a minimum of 1 hour a week for a semester

We will look forward to partnering with you this year. Our Outreach Coordinator, Jill Stillwagon (jill.stillwagon@readingpartners.org) is ready to answer any questions or schedule a group new tutor orientation as soon as you are ready.

Thank you for your interest in partnering with Reading Partners to help ensure all Tulsa students have the opportunity to reach their potential in the classroom and beyond!
