Learn How to Become a Volunteer Summer Tutor for New Haven Reads
 An hour a week makes a huge difference in the life of a child! Come and learn more about becoming a volunteer tutor for New Haven Reads, which was founded by Christine Alexander in 2001. Their mission is “to share the joy and power of reading”. New Haven Reads provides an environment where children and adults have access to free books and tutoring to increase their literacy skills and academic performance. New Haven Reads is currently looking for spring and summer volunteer tutors. Currently they have a waiting list of students who are in need of tutors. They ask for a minimum commitment of one hour/week. You don’t have to be a teacher to be a tutor. Our tutors include college students, business men and women, social workers, police officers, retirees, and college professors. New Haven Reads welcomes support from volunteers across the community but volunteers must be 16 or older. Our tutors are a diverse group of people yet all of them share in the commitment to helping our students succeed. To learn more about becoming a New Haven Reads tutor, please attend this one hour workshop where you will learn more about the program and also meet a current tutor.
