New Haven Reads is a beautiful, simple
equation: Trained volunteer tutors work
one-on-one with students to build skills,
confidence, and school success. Parents
find a commnity that offers hope
and support. Tutors get satisfaction,
intangible joy – and real hugs.

“As a parent, you do whatever it is you have to do to help your
child. He has progressed tremendously. Once he got in here, the
reading, it changed.”
“The amazing thing about this place is the passion. All the
people who volunteer here are here because they want to be

they don’t have to come. There is a community, family feeling.”
