America Reads tutors 2013-2014

The University of Kansas America Reads Challenge program is part of a larger, national campaign initiated by President Bill Clinton to help "at-risk" students develop reading skills. University of Kansas America Reads tutors are Federal Work Study award recipients and work exclusively in Title 1 elementary schools in the Lawrence USD 497 school district with at risk students on improving their reading skills. Tutors read aloud to students, prepare lessons to build reading skills, and provide students with an opportunity to practice reading. Additionally, tutors serve a positive role model, offering encouragement and motivation to become life long readers. Our mission is to...

  • To provide quality tutoring to Title 1 elementary students in the area of reading.
  • To help students improve their reading skills and abilities.
  • To provide students with a supportive environment in which to succeed.
  • To engage children with reading in such a way to help them find enjoyment in it.
