Five College America Reads and Counts

The Five College America Reads and Counts Tutor Program is a collaborative effort between the five college administrators, students, and community members, as well as the Five Colleges, Inc. office working together to insure that all children in the community are reading independently by the end of the third grade.

Enlisted students from Amherst College, Hampshire College, Mount Holyoke College, Smith College and the University of Massachusetts have joined together in the America Reads/America Counts Program to help area schools and agencies serving elementary age children to obtain math and reading tutors at no cost.

Recently, Five College America Reads Tutors had over 200 tutors at over 30 different local schools and community agencies, including elementary schools, after-school programs, libraries, and child care services. The response from both the tutors and the work sites has been overwhelmingly positive.
