Children's Literacy Center's goal is to build capacity and expand its impact across the Front Range by increasing the number of volunteers who provide free tutoring to children who are reading below their grade level. The Education and Volunteer Engagement VISTA will also increase the number of students enrolled in CLCs free tutoring program.

Tutors and children meet twice a week for one hour over the course of twelve-weeks to work through lessons in the Peak Reader curriculum. The tutors not only provide one-to-one tutoring in reading, but they also act as positive role models in helping each child discover the joy of reading and in the process, improving the child's self-esteem. The VISTA member will work to build relationships with educators and school administrators to enroll the appropriate students in the program and at the same time, reach out to community organizations as well as local employers to engage volunteers. 86% of current participants at Children's Literacy Center are from low-income backgrounds. 94% of children in the program improve their reading skills.
