YOU can help teach a child to read.
Literacy is a basic human right, essential for individual and community success. Sadly, only 48% of 3rd-grade students in Winston-Salem/Forsyth County Schools (WS/FCS) are proficient in reading. When schools return to normal, children will need us more than ever before.
Read Write Spell trains volunteer tutors to provide free, one-to-one, reading instruction to WS/FCS students who struggle with literacy. Our approach is rooted in the science of reading and is scientifically proven to be more effective, for more children, than traditional literacy instruction.
Join us at a virtual information session to learn more about becoming a tutor
Due to COVID-19, an unprecedented number of children need help with literacy. The schools cannot do it alone. You can help elementary school children recover from this time away from critical in-person literacy instruction. We will train and support you and give you and your student the tools necessary for success.
Virtual Volunteer Information Sessions are held on the 2nd Tuesday of every month from 12 pm-1 pm. Register for an upcoming info session today.
Hear what our tutors say
One of the best things I do with my time is to work and volunteer with Read Write Spell as a reading tutor…when schools are able to reopen next year we will need reading support more than ever. Please consider getting trained to tutor a child next year. You are needed more than ever!
