The five-hour event featured Pratt faculty, administrators, students, and community members serving as volunteer tutors to 1,800 children at 27 stations set up for reading and related activities.

America Reads/Counts is a federal program designed to address falling literacy scores by offering tutoring. Pratt has offered the program since 2000, and now has about 70 Pratt students who tutor about 5,000 children a week at more than 40 schools and other sites across New York City.
