Partners Read

Placing Volunteers Into WCPSS Elementary Schools To Support Literacy

What is Partner's Read?

Read Together

Magic happens on Friday mornings. Before the school and work day begin, Partners Read volunteers read with two “developing readers” for a total of 30 minutes. This time together helps boost students’ confidence and enjoyment in reading.


Give a Book

Weekly, students pick out one book to read with their mentor, and then they take it home! By the end of the school year, they have twenty new books that they are excited to read outside of school. These books are provided by WakeEd Partnership.



This is a unique opportunity. Volunteers read with the same students each week for 10 weeks in the Fall and the Spring, forming special one-on-one relationships that bring joy to both students and volunteers.


Virtual Library

While school buildings were closed for WCPSS students, WakeEd’s Partners Read program continues online through our virtual read-aloud library.
