Mission Statement

Read to a Child inspires caring adults to read aloud to children and to help create a better future. Research proves that the simple act of reading aloud to a child significantly impacts his or her literacy skills and, thus, his or her likelihood for success.

Description

Read to a Child is a nonprofit organization that creates better opportunities for children and strengthens society as a whole by focusing on reading aloud to children. We partner with caring adults and socially-minded companies, foundations and individuals to offer an easy way to have an enormous impact on the lives of children. When an adult reads aloud to a child, both parties have a joyful, rewarding experience that greatly increases the child’s literacy skills and his or her opportunities for success in the future.

Last year, the lunchtime reading program provided 34,500 reading sessions for 1150 children in Boston, Detroit, Connecticut, Los Angeles, and South Florida.
