Let’s change that together.
Philly Reading Coaches is a program that helps students in grades K-3 become better, motivated, and confident readers.Committed volunteers, as young as 14 years old, spend a minimum of one hour a week reading with a student. These one-on-one sessions, during which Reading Coaches provide fun, child-guided reading experiences, help students gain confidence in their abilities and discover a love for reading.
Last school year, we paired over 100 children with Reading Coaches as part of our pilot. This September, we will be expanding to 20 sites and we need more caring, committed volunteers like you!
