Founded in 1998, CEHD America Reads is a literacy tutoring program housed in the Department of Curriculum and Instruction. Undergraduate students at the University of Minnesota train as literacy mentors to support K-8th grade students in reading skills, homework help, and other educational enrichment activities at schools and community sites. The program partners with community organizations across Minneapolis and St. Paul, both in-person and remotely.
CEHD America Reads is committed to positively impacting young people by teaching them lifelong learning skills and helping them cultivate an interest in secondary and higher education, and by creating positive outcomes in literacy through our relationships in the Twin Cities communities.
