We seek passionate and dedicated individuals to serve as Colorado Reading Corps tutors in the 2017–2018 school year.

Colorado Reading Corps tutors help students build literacy skills to increase their reading proficiency. Tutors support each student’s classroom instruction by using evidence-based reading interventions in one-on-one sessions with students who are reading below grade level. Tutors also have the opportunity to support the community and complete service projects with other partner organizations. Colorado Reading Corps tutors serve full-time, Monday through Friday, from August 1, 2017 through June 30, 2018.
