Summer 2021: Volunteering for Read to Succeed Asheville/Buncombe
Read to Succeed volunteer reading tutors work one-to-one with K-3rd grade students during the school year. Tutoring sessions are on hold for the summer and will resume when the 2021-2022 school year begins.

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 literacy achievement.
Each tutor is periodically observed and evaluated to assure that teaching techniques remain true to the R2S curriculum and standards.
Monthly volunteer meetings provide additional training and the opportunity for tutors to share ideas. Featured speakers often present new perspectives on literacy and tutoring skills.
