We need your help to get children on track to reading!

Brilliant Detroit is partnering with the Center for Success to host high dosage reading tutoring for students K-3 at four of our Detroit sites.

Mentors work one-on-one with students, reading books, completing homework, and playing literacy games curated and provided by the Center for Success staff. This program has been shown to effectively increase reading levels by almost 2.5 grades each year!

We hope you can be a part of this transformational program with us!We seek additional tutors to match growing student interest. Tutoring takes place Monday through Thursday from 4:30-6:30 during the summer. The summer program runs from July 8th to August 29th.

This will be a weekly commitment and consistent volunteering is required.We ask that tutors commit to either Monday and Wednesday or Tuesday and Thursday from 4:30 to 5:30 and/or 5:30 to 6:30 pm. If you can only tutor one day a week, we ask that you come in for both hours that day.

There is a mandatory training prior to tutoring. There is a mandatory training prior to tutoring.
