Work Study – Reading Partners


Reading Tutor and Nonprofit Assistant, Reading Partners

Reading Partners is a local nonprofit organization that works to expand life opportunities for at-risk elementary school children by empowering them with strong literacy skills. Tutoring with Reading Partners requires absolutely no experience and can take as little as 45 minutes per week. If interested in participating through June 15, 2012, we would require that you tutor for at least 3 hours per week.

We work directly with schools in low-income communities to provide one-on-one literacy tutoring for students who read below grade level. Reading Partners operates reading centers in 8 Washington, DC area elementary school centers. All of our sites are accessible via public transportation.

Opportunities are available Monday-Thursday during the school day and after school. Our tutors range from

high school students to retirees. For more information, visit
