  • Where is Reading Pals located?
    Reading Pals is located in Chico, CA. It is a true (local) community project with many local donors and partnerships. You will find us online and on various elementary school campuses here in Chico.
  • What is the purpose of Reading Pals?
    Our mission is to see every elementary school student enter middle school reading on-grade level. Community members are recruited and commit to read with the same 2 students* for at least a semester, preferably 1-year. *Most volunteers attend Reading Pals 1 hour/week, thus reading with two students 30 minutes each, 1-on-1.
  • How is Reading Pals funded?
    Reading Pals has diversified support from individuals, local businesses and foundations.
  • How long has Reading Pals been in Chico?
    Chico has been home to Reading Pals since it's inception in November 2013. We have grown from operating on 4 (carefully selected Title 1) school campuses, to now in 2021, operating a reading program on every Chico Unified elementary school campus (12).
