Our mission is to accelerate children’s literacy learning and to develop in them a love of reading and writing. All children deserve to reach their intellectual potential!

Working in partnership with underserved schools, Reading Power provides one-to-one literacy tutoring during the school day for children in prekindergarten through 2nd grade in North Chicago and Zion. All tutors receive initial, ongoing and refresher training. All lessons are individualized for each child, every day. The program is offered three-five times a week based on grade level and location. Reading Power is led by reading professionals, powered by trained volunteers and uses research-based curricula.
