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.
