DC Reads 20th Anniversary Celebration

Friday, October 20th, 2017

7:00pm - 9:00pm

Location: TBD

Georgetown DC Reads is a tutoring, mentoring, and advocacy program for elementary students who are a grade level or more behind in literacy skills. The program began in 1997 as the University’s response to the passage of the America Reads Act, a literacy initiative established to improve reading proficiency for all elementary students by engaging college students as volunteer and Federal Work Study-funded tutors. A team of student coordinators lead the program through which over 150 Georgetown students serve as tutors, conducting biweekly tutoring sessions at eight sites in Ward 7.
