Indy Reads provides free literacy services to adults in central Indiana who currently read or write at or below the sixth-grade level, with the goal of promoting literacy in Indianapolis.
In 2010, Indy Reads tutored 1,210 adults between the ages of 18 and 100. Most of the students begin tutoring with third- or fourth-grade reading levels. To comprehend a newspaper, it's necessary to read at a sixth-grade level or higher, and most GED instructors recommend at least a ninth-grade reading level to pass the GED test. Indy Reads's programming helps improve participants' reading levels through one-on-one tutoring, small-group sessions, and literacy labs held at neighborhood centers. The programming also includes services for people learning English as a second language.
