Ravenswood Reads

Multi-quarter part-time
Education & Youth Development

Ravenswood Reads supports readers in kindergarten through third grade by pairing Stanford tutors with children to help improve their decoding and comprehension skills. Ravenswood Reads is also a service-learning program that emphasizes the importance of adequately preparing and supporting volunteers on an ongoing basis. As a volunteer with the Ravenswood Reads Program, you will develop lasting relationships with children, learn strategies for assisting struggling readers, participate in a service project and contribute to the local community.

"I began working with students from East Palo Alto through Ravenswood Reads, another educational program at Haas, and felt an instant connection with my tutee. I believe that education is the tool to cultivate a more passionate and kind world."

Manar Barsi worked with local youth through Ravenswood Reads.
