This is a great program that I stand behind. This is my second year volunteering at Read Ahead. This program has two main goals, 1) read with children who may struggle or may not be challenged enough, and 2) providing a positive mentor/mentee relationship. This program is designed to increase the child's reading skill level, as well as help the child gain confidence in the class room and in life! Like I said, this is great program that I am happy to volunteer in.
Although, not all schools have this program due to lack of funding. Let's help spread this program to less fortunate schools where students could really benefit from increased reading skills and confidence to bring those skills to the class room.
I would like to thank you for reading my page and for your donations. Any amount is helpful and greatly appreciated.

Together, we are making long-lasting impact in over 1,000 students’ lives each year. Read Ahead has programs in 20 schools throughout New York City, mostly served by corporate partners who support the programs both financially and with volunteers within walking distance of the school. However, 6 of our schools are supported solely by donations outside of those partnerships and are served by community partner volunteers. Without your support we will not be able to serve students in Harlem, Brooklyn, and Chinatown. Support us today!
100% of the funds raised through this campaign will go to our schools and your donation is tax deductible.
