Read to a Child is a national literacy and mentoring non-profit that fosters a love of reading, improves literacy skills, and empowers underserved children by inspiring adults to read aloud to them regularly. The organization strives to provide equal opportunity for success to all children through inspirational literacy and mentoring programs.
What We Do
In Read to a Child's Read Aloud Mentoring Program, an adult is partnered one-on-one with an at-risk elementary school student for a rewarding read aloud experience. The relationship typically lasts for the entire school year and often extends for multiple years through the end of fourth grade. The simple act of reading aloud to a child once a week, over time, can have a profound impact on the child's future. The Read Aloud Mentoring Program also offers the adult a convenient, joyful, and meaningful way to give back.
