About Lead to Read KC
Kansas City Metro Area, Kansas City, MO 64108, US
Our mission is to improve third grade literacy by mobilizing community volunteers to read one-to-one with children in Kansas City-area classrooms on a weekly basis.
Lead to Read KC is dedicated to improving the basic literacy skills of children in our urban core. Why? Because fewer than half of Kansas City, Missouri third graders are reading on grade level. Launched in 2011, Lead to Read KC has grown into Kansas City’s largest literacy volunteer corps, connecting nearly 1,100 elementary students with adult Reading Mentors across the metropolitan area each week.
