Reach’s core program builds literacy skills, after-school, using an innovative, three-pronged model:

  • Training: Two days each week, teachers guide our adolescent tutors in preparing lesson plans grounded in the core components of literacy development.
  • Tutoring: On two alternating days, our tutors provide reading instruction to elementary school students in need of support.
  • Compensation: Our tutors are paid for program participation and can earn raises based on performance in and after school.
