READ Alliance

        Read Alliance works to improve the educational trajectory of at-risk kindergarten and first grade students through one-to-one tutoring in foundational reading skills. 

        Students that qualify for the program are trained to become READ tutors. They are then partnered with an elementary school in the neighborhood. Read Tutors are trained to implement the Reading for All Learners Program (RALP). Students are paid $8.75/hour, including for the training session.
