Grades 1–3

A strong start in school can make all the difference for your child. Our READS literacy intervention program provides that extra level of support to make sure they develop reading skills that are so important to their success.

Your child will participate in one-on-one tutoring and fun, hands-on activities that support reading comprehension, oral fluency and a genuine love of reading. We also host family reading events and give you the tools to help your young reader grow at home.

Note: Due to capacity, we are currently only able to serve students at Daniel J. Corkery School and Epiphany Catholic School. Participation is by referral only; talk to your child's teacher to learn more about enrolling in the READS program.

Get Involved

By volunteering just once a week during the school year, you can make a significant impact on a child’s literacy growth—and future success in school.
