Read Write Discover

is fighting illiteracy by helping learners build confidence in their reading and writing skills over the summer.

In 2006, a group of high school students from Milpitas High School began volunteering at local elementary schools to help young learners improve their reading and writing skills. Realizing that those same youth needed extra support during summer break, they reached out to the Milpitas Library to ask if they could continue to tutor their learners there.

Since then, Read Write Discover has grown and partnered with libraries and high school students across the Bay Area, bringing free, personalized tutoring to more than 300 students every summer.
