We believe every child deserves to become a confident adult well-equipped for a successful life. Inspired by this belief, we partnered with our local schools to help solve one of their greatest challenges... helping all students learn how to read confidently. When a student is able to read with confidence it changes the trajectory of their educational experience. Our simple model: One student, one volunteer, one hour a week has led to over 2,500 students changing the story of their lives.

When students complete the Reading Pals program, they have gained much more than reading abilities. They walk away filled with self-esteem and confidence to carry them through life.
The ability to read is fundamental to success- in school, in the workplace, and in becoming an engaged citizen. Too many of the kids in our community today, cannot read at grade level. We need concerned citizens who are willing to spend 1-hour a week helping a child learn to read, in turn, building their self-confidence and setting them on a path to success.

Readings Pals aims to see every child enter 6th grade reading at grade level, equipped with the tools they need to learn and to engage as citizen steward of their community.
