Improving Literacy in the District
Did you know that almost 30% of third grade children do not pass standardized reading tests in DC? As adults, 36 % of DC residents function at the lowest level of literacy - functional illiteracy.
The DC Reads Program is committed to meeting this challenge by providing quality tutoring for children in need. We work with DC Public Schools, and community-based organizations to support literacy in Washington, DC. DC Reads provides on-site, 1-2 hour tutoring sessions in public schools and community-based organizations. The goal of DC Reads is to improve the reading proficiency of all elementary students.
The DC Reads Program at The George Washington University is excited to announce that the spring semester tutor application is now live!
The DC Reads Spring 2014 Application deadline is Friday, January 24th by 5 pm.
Please note that applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis so it is encouraged to complete an application as soon as possible!
