Empowering students to succeed in reading and in life by harnessing the power of community volunteers to provide one-on-one tutoring.
We envision a future in which all children in this nation have the reading skills they need to reach their full potential.
Our mission is to help children become lifelong readers by empowering communities to provide individualized instruction with measurable results.
GOING TO SCALE
