“TEACH a KID to READ is built on a simple idea: through literacy, we can change the lives of the current generation —and generations to come. We can end the cycles of poverty, prison and addiction that plague our most vulnerable and limit their potential. At Teach a Kid to Read, we are dedicated to providing support and literacy services to those in need by activating a cavalry of caring volunteers.”
TEACH a KID to READ believes literacy is critical to the success of a child’s life. We are on a mission to transform the landscape of literacy, one person at a time. We strive to help children, families, communities and schools gain access to the resources they need to learn to read and succeed.
