Volunteer Highlight

See what it's like to be a Read. Graduate. Succeed. volunteer.

"The Read. Graduate. Succeed. program is very successful. Eighty percent of the students involved in this program raise their reading level two to three levels, just in one school year."

- Cindie

Why are Read. Graduate. Succeed. volunteers important?

We need volunteers like Cindie because kids who fall behind in school often remain behind and are more likely to drop out of school. Read. Graduate. Succeed. combats this problem by matching volunteer tutors with young students who are struggling with their reading skills. The goal is that every student can have regular, one-on-one tutoring to help them become confident in their reading abilities.
