Mission Statement

Literacy San Antonio, Inc. strives to significantly and permanently raise literacy levels in Bexar County by empowering the community and employing innovations in collaboration, programs and technology. A campaign coordinated by Literacy San Antonio, SAReads is dedicated to making grade-level reading a reality for all students in Bexar County.

Description

SAReads trains, places and monitors volunteers as literacy tutors in public schools in San Antonio. SAReads gives an early-literacy boost to kindergarten through third-grade students with one-on-one tutoring, home libraries, e-Readers and literary events.

The SAReads campaign supports teachers, students and families to achieve the desired result: children entering fourth grade as proficient readers. The SAReads campaign incorporates one-on-one tutoring, a citywide book bank and community mobilization.

SAReads evaluators continue to look at students’ improvements over time, as well as the effectiveness of additional literacy skill-building supports. SAReads develops best practices to support schools and students through an integrated community support model.
