Reading Partners empowers community volunteers to provide one-on-one reading instruction for elementary school students reading below grade level. As a national nonprofit organization, Reading Partners provides literacy tutoring to more than 8,500 elementary school students, serving low-income communities across eight states and the District of Columbia. Reading Partners delivers a highly effective research-validated program that has helped thousands of children master the fundamental reading skills they need to succeed in school and beyond.

Reading Partners was founded in the Silicon Valley in 1999. Since then, Reading Partners has been successfully providing volunteer-led, one-on-one literacy tutoring to K-5 students in three counties across Silicon Valley. We currently operate reading centers in twenty schools in Sunnyvale, San Jose, Redwood City, Hayward, San Mateo, Mountain View, and Atherton. Visit, or connect with us on LinkedIn, Twitter and Facebook, to learn more about how Reading Partners is helping improve student literacy, and how you can help children in your community improve their reading skills and succeed in school.

To support our students’ efforts outside of the reading center, Reading Partners gives students the opportunity to pick a “take reading home” book after each tutoring session. Taking books home helps students to build their home libraries and encourages a joy of reading outside of the school environment. For many students who have few books in the home, the opportunity to have books of their sparks an even greater enthusiasm for reading.

In order to keep up with students’ appetite for reading, we call on the help of our community. Help give the gift of reading to our students by donating new and gently used kids books to Reading Partners.
