Reading Partners


Reading Partners has been a part of the Colorado educational landscape since 2012, when Mile High United Way leveraged a federal Social Innovation Fund grant to help ensure more Colorado children could read proficiently by third grade. We’ve paired community volunteers in schools like Garden Place Academy to help kids master basic reading skills and narrow their achievement gaps. Our one-on-one tutoring empowers students to succeed while simultaneously empowering volunteers to make a lasting difference in our community through individualized personal attention to each student in our program.

A national 501(c)3 nonprofit, we are dedicated to helping students who struggle with reading unlock and develop the foundational skills they need to succeed in school and in life. To learn more, visit
