In 1997, Fresno State developed the Fresno Reading Enrichment and Academic Development through Service (Fresno READS) project with the goal of helping young children improve literacy skills, while fostering a genuine love of books and reading. This project recruits, trains, and places Fresno State students as mentors and tutors for children in kindergarten through sixth grade.
Fresno READS Tutors/Mentors/Educators
Fresno READS tutors foster reading and academic skills through the one-on-one tutoring and small group instruction of local elementary children, grade K through 6th grade. Tutors are also active participants and educators at such events as parent education fairs, fund raisers, and family literacy workshops. This project will focus on providing Fresno State tutors with meaningful academic, personal, and professional experiences, and will emphasize collaboration and community involvement.
