The mission of Read to a Child is to increase children's success in reading and in life by inspiring adults to read to them regularly.
We pair volunteers to read aloud to elementary school children (those who have been identified by their teachers as needing a caring mentor, those who are not reading at grade-level, are not being read to at home, and/or whose first language isn't English) once a week during lunch.
Read to a Child is a visionary 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 to offer a simple way to have an enormous impact on the lives of children. When an adult reads aloud to a chid, both parties have a joyful, rewarding experience that greatly increases the child's literacy skills and his or her likelihood for success in the future.
