Wright to Read promotes literacy through the tutoring and mentoring of elementary school students and outreach to the Alexandria community.
Each Wright to Read volunteer truly gives the gift of literacy to a student. There is no greater gift than knowing how to read. On average, Wright to Read volunteers work with their assigned student for one hour each week at a local library. Volunteers also dedicate time to planning the tutoring sessions and planning enrichment activities. Wright to Read asks volunteers to tutor and mentor for one year. We are delighted that this year,as most, our volunteers average three years of service to a student. Please help us support our current volunteers and to recruit, screen, train, and support new volunteers so that we can serve more students.
