Our Mission

Support our mission by creating your own fundraiser.

Over $45 million dollars worth of books and computers donated and counting! Thank you, donors!

Fact: 60% of underprivileged children do not own a single book. This makes a well-stocked school library a critical resource hub that is a necessity, not a luxury.
 

Reader to Reader, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to expanding literacy and learning opportunities for the nation's most chronically underserved and vulnerable communities, including inner-city schools, Native American reservations, and poor rural towns.

Reader to Reader accomplishes this primarily through innovative literacy programs, book & computer donation programs, and the development of partnerships with school districts that extend the capacity of the education system to transform struggling students into joyful and engaged lifelong learners.


Our mission is to support communities and individuals who are impoverished, neglected, or disempowered, with special focus on the Navajo Nation, rural areas including Maine and Mississippi, and our local Massachusetts schools.

Other projects:
READ, THINK, SHARE- One-on-one reading with a college mentor gets kids engaged with reading in new and exciting ways.

MANY PATHS- College advising and prep website/mentorship for low-income, minority and/or first-generation students to get them into college and graduated!

ATHENA INTERACTIVE LITERACY PROJECT- Teen moms from Holyoke, MA come to our offices for workshops in spoken word poetry, teaching their kids to read, interactive literacy and healthy cooking.

DISCOVERBOOKS- Young parents learn how to get involved in their child's education and help them become strong, life-long readers and learners.

COLLEGE KNOWLEDGE- Telementoring and an innovative video series shows Native American youth the various post-secondary options that are available to them and helps them navigate the process of researching, applying to and being successful at college.

SPRINGBOARD PROGRAM- Student-designed, student-led literacy projects are supported by Reader to Reader for maximum impact on both student and community. Students are challenged to provide educational resources in innovative, valuable and wanted ways. Community involvement is high, and projects are made sustainable by community empowerment and ownership.
