America Reads places Oberlin College students in the Oberlin City School District, preschools, and after-school programs to serve as reading tutors for children in preschool through fifth grade. America Reads tutors participate in training and reflection sessions throughout the year. The America Reads Program is a Community Service Work Study Program partner and pays students through Federal Work-Study funds.
