Who we are.
Read Better Be Better (RBBB) is a rapidly-growing Phoenix-based nonprofit solving the Arizona literacy crisis with youth leaders. Since our organization's pilot program in 2014, we have gone from serving 32 students to serving almost 4,000 students in 7 school districts and 4 Boys and Girls Club.

What we need.
RBBB's communications team needs an Instagram-focused volunteer to create and execute IG feed and stories. IG volunteer would have creative flexibility within the brand guidelines posting to IG Feed and Stories. Raw content (photos, videos, graphics content) would be provided, but the volunteer is welcome to visit RBBB program sites to collect content (provided a fingerprint clearance can be provided). No formal marketing or communications background is required, but the Marketing Communications Coordinator would need to see an online portfolio or examples of previous work.

If you want to volunteer with an amazing nonprofit providing a positive change in the lives of Arizona students, join the RBBB team!

Mission Statement

Read Better Be Better (RBBB) helps children improve literacy skills and become better learners.

Description

Arizona has a problem: 79% of third grade students are not reading at grade level. We know kids who do not graduate high school are less likely to be employed and more likely to engage in criminal behavior. So this problem has a significant social and economic cost to society.

Read Better Be Better is a nonprofit organization that helps children improve literacy skills and become better learners. We are the only nonprofit organization that inspires and equips Arizona youth to help us solve this literacy crisis.

The program pairs trained 8 th grade students with struggling third grade readers. Together, they work through our reading comprehension curriculum, followed by fun group activities; all of which are proven to develop literacy skills as a foundation for broader academic success.

Unlike any other afterschool program in Arizona, RBBB benefits two groups of children at significant developmental milestones. 3rd grade participants significantly improve reading comprehension and develop an enjoyment of reading. 8th graders show drastic increases in their sense of civic responsibility and even begin to read to siblings at home, which is the best possible solution for sustained change.
