Mission Statement

Foster the love of reading in elementary school students. Come join us, read to elementary school students, and give each one a new book of their choice!


Everybody Reads is a reading and book donation program run entirely by volunteers since early 2001. From the beginning, the Tzu Chi Foundation funded the purchase of new books for our program. Since 2010, anonymous donors have funded program operations and the purchase of new books to supplement those funded by Tzu Chi. Everybody Reads volunteers read to elementary school students and give each student a new book of their choice. Han C. Tran runs Everybody Reads with the invaluable assistance of fellow Everybody Reads volunteers and in close coordination with members of the Tzu Chi foundation.

With the enthusiastic support of the school's administration, the Everybody Reads program at Noble Elementary School in North Hills, CA has been in continuous operation since early 2001. Thanks to our incredible volunteers, we wrapped up our 17th year at Noble on May 20th. The 2017-2018 school year programs are scheduled for September 16th, October 21st, November 4th, December 9th, January 20th, February 10th, March 17th, April 21st, and May 19th. The deadline to reserve your space and your preferred reading partner(s) is noon the day before program day. Come join us, read to elementary school students, and give each one a new book of their choice!
