We are a community program that provide youth with summer literacy tutoring to advance their educational goals.
Read Write Discover (RWD) is a completely free, all volunteer-run nonprofit organization, serving over 300 K-8th graders every summer. Read Write Discover builds upon each child’s individual literacy skills and pairs them with a dedicated tutor for an individualized learning experience, working with peers near their skill level.
RWD partners with local libraries in San Jose, Milpitas, and San Francisco, fostering the relationship between community and educational programs. With the help of our extraordinary librarians, we are able to engage with our communities on a deeper level and work together to make a positive impact.
We recruit and train our high school volunteers to act as Program Coordinators, or work as Tutors, to build their leadership skills. Our volunteers have the opportunity to work with youth who are struggling with reading or writing, through interactive sessions to make learning fun.
