At Chapter One, we transform children’s futures with 1:1 reading support at the time they need it most.
What We Do
High Impact Tutoring
Our high impact tutoring model provides schools with trained staff who work with students on a 1:1 basis each day.
Online Reading Volunteers
We connect schools with corporate volunteers who spend 30 minutes each week reading online with an early reader.
Transforming children’s futures
Chapter One’s high impact tutoring program has been demonstrated in large-scale randomized control studies to substantially increase student beginning reading proficiency.
Our online reading volunteers build on these skills by inspiring students to read more fluently and with engagement and comprehension.
70% of kindergarten students who participated in our program achieved benchmark end-of-year phonics skills, compared to 32% of students in a control group.
