Our Purpose

An (8) week early literacy outreach program that helps children learn to read and get them on or above their grade level. As a result of our individualized instruction, which follows a proven, structured curriculum covering multiple literacy skills, 85% of   all our reading students met or exceeded their primary year‒end literacy growth goal. We partner with schools and communities and engage volunteers to provide one‒on‒one tutoring to students who are below proficient levels in reading.

Raising Readers Program begins with books, an outreach of early literacy. This 8 - week program promises to help your child learn to read and get them on grade level or above.  Your child will also receive high quality books selected for their appeal and age.
