BCNC Literacy Partnership Program (formerly Read Boston)

the neighborhood center

The BCNC Literacy Partnership Program (formerly Read Boston), is a local chapter of the national America Reads Program, is a children's literacy campaign whose mission is to promote literacy among Boston's elementary age students.

BC students (graduate and undergraduate) who receive work-study funds serve as tutors at local elementary schools.

The average student works three to six hours per week with one or more children and will receive training.

Please be reminded that you must have work study eligibility to participate in the BCNC Literacy Partnership Program. If you are unsure, you can check your workstudy status on the Agora Portal.

If you have questions, please e-mail our BCNC Literacy Partnership Program Coordinator, Madeline Gillespie.

We are no longer accepting applications for BLPP for Fall 2013.
