Gainesville Reads is a program developed by the Northeast Georgia History Center to offer free, one-on-one tutoring for elementary school students who struggle with reading. Trained volunteer tutors mentor students for one hour each week through educational computer programs, reading time, a workbook, and activities for the specific struggles of the student. This program is based on a well-established literacy program, New Haven Reads, which has over 15 years of successful results in increasing literacy among students K-12.
