There is a vital need for students to successfully read and comprehend at an early age. Our literacy program, Miami Reads, provides intensive one-on-one and
small group reading tutoring to students in elementary school. The program's goal is to increase students' reading comprehension by at least one letter grade. Our
tutors work in the schools on a full-time and part-time basis with their assigned students.
Major funding for Miami Reads is provided through Volunteer Florida from the Corporation for National and Community Service. Significant matching funds are provided
locally by The Children's Trust, Peacock Foundation, and Miami-Dade County Public Schools.
