Colorado Reading Corps

In Colorado today, 60% of third graders can’t read at grade level. If they don’t read proficiently by the end of third grade, odds are against them for catching up in the future. Join Colorado Reading Corps as a tutor and you’ll help students build skills needed to become successful readers. Our tutors work one-on-one with students in grades  K-3. No experience? No problem! Reading Corps provides comprehensive training in strategies proven to help students learn.
