Established in 1996 under the American Reads Initiative, DC Reads has worked to improve the historically low literacy rates in our nation's capitol. The district-wide collaboration consists of several universities, their students, the DC Public School System, and a number of community-based organizations united under one goal of elementary school literacy. More than 150 AU students serve as tutors, volunteering their time to better the lives of the area’s elementary school children.
