Become an R2S Volunteer Reading Tutor for the 2023-2024 School Year
Support a child in learning to read!
R2S is looking for dedicated volunteer reading tutors who are available to build a lasting relationship with a K-5 student for the entire school year, meeting with them twice a week either during or after school.
Our volunteers understand the role of community-powered literacy in Asheville and Buncombe County and believe in all students' innate ability to learn and grow as a reader.
Commitment: All R2S Reading Tutors meet 1-to-1 with a student during or afterschool 2x/week for the entire school year.
Training: All new volunteer reading tutors are required to complete a minimum of six hours of training (two hours a day spread across three days). All upcoming trainings will take place on Zoom.

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.
R2S Volunteers Rock!
Our reading tutors are highly motivated to help others and genuinely enjoy working with young children in an instructional relationship.
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.
Read to Succeed is on a mission to help close the race-based opportunity gap through community-powered literacy programming that engages children, families, and community partners.
