Readers Are Leaders
Children reading to children — that’s what makes Readers Are Leaders special. Readers Are Leaders is a vital peer mentoring program that matches older students with younger ones. The pairs meet for one-on-one reading during the lunch and recess hour.
Readers Are Leaders partners — Kindergarten through fifth grade students — are from the same Title I public schools as the students with whom they read. Once a week, the reading partners eat lunch with their students and then enjoy books together. Both students benefit from the extra reading time in their week, and their reading skills inevitably improve.
