Traveling Stories is a 501c3 nonprofit organization that provides free reading support so that low-income families have the tools they need to break the cycle of poverty. We were established in 2010 by Emily Moberly, and exist to transform reluctant readers into confident ones. We specialize in making reading fun and believe that strong literacy skills are the most empowering gift we can give someone. Our StoryTent programs improve reading levels while also teaching families basic financial literacy skills. We inspire a love for reading while also strengthening children’s critical thinking skills and self-confidence.
Everybody I've met with Traveling Stories - from the director to the interns to the volunteers to the kids we read with - having been fun, giving, flexible, and receptive. I love the idea behind what this group does, and can't get over how effective their approach is. On a personal level, the best part has been how welcome I've been each time I've volunteered. Everybody makes me smile and feel good. How awesome is that?
