Volunteers are needed to empower John Gill students to succeed in reading and in life. Reading Partners is a local literacy nonprofit working to help close the achievement gap by recruiting volunteers to work one-on-one with John Gill students who are reading below grade level. 

The minimum commitment to volunteer is only 1 hour per week, and you can really make an impact in the life of a child.Tutoring slots are 8:45-9:45, 10:15-11 am, and 1:30-5:30 pm, Mondays-Wednesdays, and 12:30-5:30, Thursdays. No experience is needed.

If interested, please email asha.albuquerque@readingpartners.org, or call 650-223-4541

Also worth mentioning, Reading Partners was mentioned in a New York Times editorial on "social programs that work." https://www.nytimes.com/2015/01/01/opinion/social-programs-that-work.html
