    Reading Together fosters the joy of reading and boosts reading skills through mentorship and creative play. 

    1st-5th grade students and trained mentors meet weekly, one-on-one, to work on grade-level reading skills in a virtual setting. Students earn books by completing reading goals.

    We are accepting students through mid-February, 2021 for the current school year. Apply Today! (https://bit.ly/35R2olx)

    To participate in the program, students must:

    • be in grades 1-5
