3 reading is forever

Have you ever wanted to do something AMAZING to change the world but didn't know where to start?

Here is an opportunity for five, very special families who have a child in the first, second or third grade, to learn how to read...and get paid!

The American Youth Literacy Foundation has recently released the public beta version of the FUNetix 12 Hour Reading App in the App Store and Google Play.

The app can teach virtually any child how to read in 12 hours.

Our team of User Experience (UX) professionals is conducting live testing of the app with five families to be selected to participate in the study.

Children must be between the ages of 5 and 9 and be in either 1st, 2nd or 3rd grade. Go to to sign up.

We are the American Youth Literacy Foundation, and we have been teaching children how to read for more than 17 years! We have been developing the FUNetix reading app for about five years, and in January of this year we released the final public beta of the app in the App Store and Google Play to bring an easy pathway to reading to any child, anywhere, and to help save millions of children from a lifetime of illiteracy!

The FUNetix curriculum is a patented, and is so effective at teaching children how to read, that it usually only takes 4 hours for them to reach a 1st grade level, and another 8 hours (12 hours total) to reach a 2nd grade reading level.

The app has 40 modules of learning content that take children from the ABC's to a 2nd grade reading level.

The app is a gamified, simulated 1-on-1 tutoring experience, with narration and animation throughout that holds kids attention as they learn ALL of the reading fundamentals and become strong, confident readers.

Watch your child go from a non-reader to a reader in just 12 hour!

The American Youth Literacy Foundation (AYLF), is a nationwide, charitable 501 c 3 non-profit. We started out as a tutoring program and we still tutor nationwide. But our focus has always been on finding a scaleable solution to the literacy crisis in America.

If you want to be one of the 5 very special families who are willing to complete all 40 learning modules in the app (about 12 hours of content) on film and within 12 weeks, then please go to to sign up and fill out a form.

Thank you! We hope this opportunity finds you at the right place and the right time for you and your family to help make a difference and a real impact, in an amazing way, for millions of children who are waiting for someone, or some thing, to lead them out of a life of impoverishment, to help them get through this COVID-19 setback, and help them surge into a future of unlimited possibility and potential with strong literacy skills.
