Rolling Readers USA envisions a day when all children, regardless of ethnic background or economic circumstance, are able to experience the joy of reading and writing by the age of nine. Our mission is to help at-risk children learn and love to read and develop a proprietary interest in books and literature. Rolling Readers USAÃ Â¢Ã Â Ã Â s programs will create sustainable systems of community involvement and development that will have a long-term positive impact on literacy in America.
Rolling Readers USA is a national nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization established in San Diego, California in 1991. Today, the organization is a network of over fifty community-based chapters throughout 16 states and serves over 100,000 of our nation's children every week. Wherever we serve children, families and communities in need, we continue to attract the attention of educators, businesses and community leaders. Rolling Readers USA reaches out to children through two major and effective programs: Read Aloud and Tutor USA. Taken together, Rolling Readers USA programs offer children a uniquely balanced and effective approach to early literacy development: motivation through reading aloud, independent reading through book giveaways and individualized instruction through tutoring. Program books and materials are available in English and Spanish. PARTNERSHIPS AND COLLABORATIONS Public schools districts, Even Start and Head Start sites, public housing developments, family shelters and other community-based sites sponsor Rolling Readers USA programs and volunteers locally. Several corporate stakeholders, including American Honda, Edison International, and Sony Electronics offer their employees "release time " to serve the community as Rolling Readers in various locations throughout the country. For the local school or community-based site nearest you, please contact the Rolling Readers USA Chapter which serves your area.
