Area schools, libraries and literacy programs use volunteers to help children and adults improve reading skills.

Among them are:

Partnership for Learning, an agency of the Baltimore state's attorney's office, works with first-time juvenile offenders who have reading difficulties and learning disabilities. The partnership will train prospective tutors in the multisensory, phonics-based Wilson Learning System of reading instruction, with the next training session set for Saturday.
