What is Read2Me?

Read2Me is a unique tutoring program where trained volunteers work with Kindergarten–3rd Grade students striving to meet grade level reading goals by the end of the 3rd grade. By providing one-on-one encouragement and support, tutors help these young students to develop better confidence in their reading abilities, laying the foundation for a lifelong love of reading!
