Reading Village empowers Guatemalan youth to eradicate illiteracy and lead their communities out of poverty.
Reading Village promotes children's literacy, teen leadership and community development in Guatemalan villages. We provide high school scholarships to teens who live in commmunities where only 10% of students make it to high school. We also provide them with mentorship and leadership skills. In return, the teens give back to their own pueblos leading reading activities with elementary-school-aged children, developing in them a love of reading and the ability to think critically and creatively. Our teens are transformed as they see the impact they are making on the children, and they become leaders in their community in other ways, like opening community libraries and working toward opening schools where children really learn.
