Mission Statement

Empowering children and families to achieve productive, self-reliant lives.


To reach our mission, Reading and Beyond goes where families are, offering holistic, research-based programs at multiple sites throughout Fresno and nearby Counties. Focus areas include:

  • Early childhood education
  • Literacy intervention for children
  • Health and fitness education
  • College preparation for children and parents
  • Parent involvement
  • Advocacy
  • Workforce Development
Who We Serve

Reading and Beyond targets communities that are low-income to poverty-level and provides programming for children aged 0 to 18 years, parents, and entire families. As a grass-roots community-based organization, Reading and Beyond has developed strategies and best-practices that successfully reach even the most difficult-to-reach families in rural and urban areas - including those families that are low-literate and poverty-level. We see ourselves as bridging the "achievement gap" for our children by providing holistic and long-term programs.

This place not only teaches to read better, but helps kids of all ages, including parents, to make a good education possible. They also have good training, easy-to-follow and easy-to implement tutoring plans, and many kids who want your help.
