Read 2 Lead Literacy Tutor Information

  • Read 2 lead

    To go beyond storytelling sessions, we invite community members and partners to "Be Present!" in our efforts to improve literacy. While actively engaging and encouraging students to tap into their full potential as future leaders, CPS has implemented a community partner-based "Read 2 Lead" program and is actively recruiting literacy tutors. This program assists teachers and helps students become more confident in their reading and comprehension abilities.

    • Elevate achievement, confidence, self-awareness and esteem
    • Increase engagement and create more opportunities for community collaboration
    • Enhance problem-solving and critical thinking skills required for future success
