Forming reading relationships to improve childhood literacy.
Kids reading at grade level by the end of 3rd grade are four times more likely to graduate high school. Over the next three years, our 100,000 Books Campaign seeks to increase early reading skills in children, so they can start school feeling prepared and achieve academic success.
VOLUNTEER YOUR TIME TO INSPIRE A LIFE-LONG READER
The 100,000 Books Campaign will create supportive connections between adult volunteers and kids to improve the reading skills of children in our neighborhoods. The program will give kids better access to quality books and to reinforce the importance of building early literacy skills for parents and caregivers. Ultimately, this will improve graduation rates, resulting in greater independence for these kids in the long term.
