Volunteers Needed at New Haven Reads

Volunteers are the heart and soul of New Haven Reads, and we are currently accepting new applications.

New Haven Reads is in need of volunteers to tutor our growing number of students. If you have been thinking about making a difference in our community, now is a great time! Tutor our students and make an impact on our amazing city. 

Tutors provide one-on-one reading instruction for students ages 6-18. You don’t need any prior experience teaching or working with children, just a love of reading and a desire to help a child succeed.

  • Time Commitment: One hour per week, Monday-Friday 3-6pm or Saturday 10-2pm.
  • Training: A one hour training session and a site orientation is required before your first session. You may also shadow a session, and in-depth trainings occur 3-4 times each year.
  • How to Apply: Submit our Volunteer Application and select “Tutoring” as your preferred volunteer area.
