About

Reading Partners mobilizes communities to provide students with the proven, individualized reading support they need to read at grade level by fourth grade.We know that reading is the foundation for all future learning, and the ability to read transforms lives and empowers children and communities to reach their full potential. Research shows that students who read at grade level by fourth grade have a greater opportunity to succeed in school and in life.


We partner with under-resourced schools and engage volunteers just like you! To work one-on-one with students (Kindergarten - 4th grade) who struggle with reading. We recruit and train volunteers ages 14+ to work one-on-one with students for one hour twice a week, following a curriculum that we provide. We currently serve at 28 Reading Centers across San Francisco and East Bay.
