According to the organization, Reading Partners Tulsa hit several milestones this year, including engaging more than 1,900 community volunteers to serve more than 1,700 Tulsa students with more than 55,000 tutoring sessions. This is a record not only for Tulsa, but for the entire Reading Partners network, which includes 13 locations across the country, including major cities like Los Angeles, New York City, San Francisco, and Seattle.

Reading Partners Tulsa will kick off its 2019-2020 school year by serving more students than ever because of record-breaking volunteer participation.

According to the Reading Partners, the organizers will host a press conference on Sept. 16 to announce the proclamation and reveal impact numbers from the past year. Reading Partners leaders also hope to keep breaking their own records, but this is only possible by recruiting even more volunteers.
