Reading Success

How do we do it?

  • Through partnerships with our funders (like you), the school district and local non-profits we are ensuring that our earliest learners are on grade level.
  • By working with teachers and principals, we are targeting the most at-risk students and ensuring they have the support they need.
  • By working with non-profits we are leveraging their strengths in culture and community with that of teachers to ensure that students are getting what they need.

What drives our organization?

Growing Great Readers

The Growing Great Readers AmeriCorps program is a high quality, comprehensive, research-based English literacy tutoring program that supports students, families, and the community. Growing Great Readers’ mission is to provide low-income schools with AmeriCorps tutors to ensure that children advance to grade level reading before 3rd Grade. Why is 3rd Grade literacy so important?
