BENEFITING: READER TO READER INC

ORGANIZER: Kat

THE STORY:

Kat Libby wrote -

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.

We accomplish 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.

Please visit our website for more information: www.readertoreader.org. Our blog can be found under "News." THANK YOU FOR HELPING US CHANGE THE WORLD, ONE BOOK AT A TIME!

Other projects:
ONLINE MENTORING- 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.

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.
