What We Do
Our scalable solutions offer vital support to families and schools who need help with young readers. Our services include:
High Impact Tutoring
Our High Impact Tutoring service provides schools and families with trained staff who work with students on a one-to-one basis each day.
Online Reading Volunteers
We connect schools and families with corporate volunteers who spend 30 minutes reading online with the same child each week.
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.
7 out of 10 kindergarten students who participated in our program achieved benchmark end-of-year phonics skills, compared to 32% of students in a control group.
