Students who are strong readers by the end of third grade are positioned to be strong learners the rest of their lives. But in the United States, more than half our students reach fourth grade without learning to read proficiently. Together, we can change this! The amazing thing about our program - we train ordinary people to make an incredible impact as tutors.Find Reading Corps Opportunities
