New Haven Reads is a beautiful, simple equation: Trained volunteer tutors work one-on-one with students to build skills, confidence, and school success. Parents find a community that offers hope and support. Tutors get satisfaction, intangible joy - and real hugs.
We serve over 550 students every week in their journey to become skilled and confident readers thanks to the dedicated support of over 400 volunteers from across the community. All of our students come to us reading below grade level - some are two or more grade levels behind. All of our programs are free of charge for participants.
Our programs deliver results! Our students see their literacy scores go up, their confidence grows, and they can achieve their academic and life goals.
We can't build a community of readers without the support of people like you! Please consider a gift to support young readers!
