Currently, around 20-25 students from Carver in grades 8-12 serve as volunteers for Philly Reading Coaches at nearby Duckrey Elementary including Najifa Zaman who is interviewed on CBS3.


Philly Reading Coaches is a new program of the Philadelphia Office of Civic Engagement and Volunteer Service. Philly Reading Coaches is based on proven models, that combines early reading support, access to books, and community volunteers to boost reading skills for our city’s children. The program works by pairing trained volunteers with young students – kindergarten through 3rd grade, and by providing fun and child-guided reading experiences that help build reading skills and motivation. Each child in the program also receives 25 free books to take home.
