You can help us change that.
Philly Reading Coaches is a program that pairs volunteers 14 years old and up with K-3 students, to help them become more motivated, confident thus better readers.
As a volunteer, you will spend a minimum of 1 hour a week reading with a student. Through one-on-one sessions, you will provide fun, child-guided reading experiences, help students gain confidences in their abilities, and foster a love for reading in the child!
Last school year, we paired over 500 children with Reading Coaches as part of our pilot. This October, we will be expanding to 30 sites and we need more caring, committed volunteers like you!
