2023-2024 School Year: Volunteer with Read to Succeed Asheville/Buncombe
Support a child in learning to read!
Read to Succeed volunteer reading tutors teach elementary students to read using phonological awareness and phonics curricula that aligns with Asheville City and Buncombe County Schools instruction.
Tutors attend 6+ hours of training and work one-to-one or in small groups with K-5th grade students throughout the school year (during and after school). *We ask that tutors meet 2x/week with their students for the highest impact.

Our volunteers are the heart of our program. We provide ongoing resources, training, and literacy coaching to ensure that every tutor has what they need to effectively support their student's growth.
Each tutor is periodically observed and evaluated to assure that teaching techniques remain true to the R2S curriculum and standards.
Monthly "Tutor Huddles" provide additional training, coaching, and the opportunity for tutors to connect and share ideas.

Our tutors are prepared. They come to a tutoring session with a well-organized lesson plan that follows the R2S phonics-based, multi-sensory curriculum.
Our tutors are committed to developing meaningful relationships with their students.
They are dependable, and are available for at least two tutoring sessions each week during the school year.
Finally, our tutors are R2S ambassadors in their Asheville City and Buncombe County Schools, communicating positively with students, teachers, and school administrators about the R2S mission and their students' growth.
