About Project READ-Redwood City Friends of Literacy

Location:

1044 MIDDLEFIELD RD, REDWOOD CITY, CA 94063, US

Mission Statement

Project READ fuels the fire of hope through literacy. We believe literacy is not only a human right, but also a necessity -- a gift of opportunity and hope for the future.

Our innovative intergenerational programs bring literacy to the adults, youth and families in our community. Our programs are designed to break the cycle of illiteracy by surrounding families with literacy services that promote education and a lifelong love of learning.

Description

Make The Difference: Become a Literacy Tutor

Project READ’s adult and youth programs are committed to the literacy needs of our community, focusing on unincorporated Redwood City, the North Fair Oaks area and Redwood City’s most underserved neighborhoods and schools. One in five adults in Redwood City reads below an 8 th grade level and more than 38% of school-aged children fail to complete the 12 th grade. Within the North Fair Oaks area, where the majority of our children, teens and families live, there are few options available for after-school activities in safe and supportive educational environments.
