The mission of Reading Empowers is to promote literacy among students in New York City's elementary schools. We host Saturday morning reading clubs, in which trained adult volunteers engage students in reading age-appropriate material and facilitate discussions around the stories' main ideas. Our goal is to instill in young students an interest in reading, with the hopes that this will develop into a lifelong love and passion. We are committed to issues regarding children and we are excited to participate in Run 10 Feed 10 to help end hunger.
