The Catholic University of America

 Welcome to DC Reads!

D.C. Reads is a university-based program that began as a response to Clinton's 1997 America Reads Challenge. The Catholic University of America is one of seven universities in the DC Metro area that manages a program of this kind. We work in partnership with nine different local elementary schools and non-profit institutions to increase elementary student’s reading and math skills. Undergraduate and graduate students alike are encouraged to apply at the beginning of every semester! We accept work study students and volunteers. No previous tutoring experience is necessary.

 

NOW ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS!

The DC Reads Office has updated the applications for tutors and team leaders! Applications can be found online. (Hint: Look to the right!)
Early applicants will receive priority site placement.
