Improving Literacy in the District
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.
