Reading Together

Reading Together

Reading Together fosters the joy of reading and boosts reading skills through mentorship and creative play.

Students and trained volunteer mentors meet weekly, one-on-one, to work on grade-level reading skills.

To participate in the program, students must:

  • be in grades 1-5
  • read just below grade level
  • live in or attend school in Saint Paul
  • be able to meet with their volunteer mentors every week on the same day and time

Fill out the online student application — one for each child.

Once your child has been accepted into the program, we will match your child with a volunteer Reading Mentor, schedule a weekly reading session, and confirm the start date.
