ABQ Reads empowers young students to be literate, lifelong learners through a supportive community of tutors and mentors.
Albuquerque Reads is a literacy tutoring program offered in three Title I (high poverty) schools. Albuquerque Reads is a partnership with the Albuquerque Public Schools and is dedicated to ensuring that all students will enter the next grade at or above reading level. To accomplish this, Albuquerque Reads relies on volunteer tutors who are trained to work one on one with these students. These tutoring sessions take place 3 times a week. Typically, a tutor devotes 90 minutes a week during which time he/she tutors two kindergarten students. Albuquerque Reads is a program of the Career Guidance Institute which is 501c3 organization of the Greater Albuquerque Chamber of Commerce.
