The Midlands Reading Consortium (MRC) is a volunteer tutoring initiative aimed at improving reading engagement for elementary students, Pre-K to 2nd Grade, in school districts across Richland, Lexington, Newberry, Fairfield and Orangeburg counties. MRC addresses low reading proficiency in our community schools by supplementing and enhancing shared reading experiences between volunteer tutors and their striving readers. MRC provides free training workshops, tutoring materials, and the support needed to help volunteer tutors work with their students on a weekly basis throughout the school year.
