REGISTER A STUDENT

Thank you for your interest! We offer three programs based on grade level. Please fill out the registration form for the one that applies to your student.

AFTER SCHOOL LITERACY PROGRAM
Our After School Literacy Program is READ 718’s core program. This program is designed for children in grades 3-8 who are reading below grade level. To be eligible for this program, children must be in grades 3-8, eligible for free or reduced-price lunch at school, and be struggling with reading based on teacher feedback and our initial assessment. This program runs for three, 10 week cycles in fall, winter, and spring.

We are now registering students for Fall 2019 at both our Boerum Hill and Bed-Stuy locations. Click below to register for either location.

SUMMER READING ROOM

READ 718’s ​Summer Reading Room​ is a 5-week program (JULY 1-31) that offers students entering grades 3-6 the opportunity to practice fundamental reading skills, promote engagement in reading, and prevent “summer slide.” Each READer will work one-on-one with a trained volunteer during scheduled afternoons on Mondays, Tuesdays and/or Wednesdays. READers can come 1, 2, or 3 afternoons a week for 1 hour.

SUMMER READING ROOM 2019 is FULL.

SATURDAY READING ROOM
The Saturday Reading Room is designed for 1st-3rd graders to practice their developing reading skills with a trained tutor in a relaxed and fun environment. Children come to READ 718 each Saturday for 8 weeks and work with a high school aged tutor on building fluency, comprehension, and reading stamina. Participants will also have the opportunity to play games that build sight word and spelling pattern knowledge. This program also provides the opportunity for high schoolers to serve their community in a meaningful and enjoyable way.

We are now registering for Fall 2019. October 5-December 7.
