THE STORY:

Read Lead is an educational initiative that provides free literacy and leadership opportunities for youth and young adults. Through strategic partnerships we assist the community by providing literacy-based summer and after school programs, and a leadership institute focusing on global, civic, and social entrepreneurial leadership.

Since 2011, our Read Lead CDF Freedom Schools program provides summer enrichment that helps children fall in love with reading, increase self-esteem, and generate a positive attitude towards learning. In six weeks of learning, scholars read over 80 books that are developmentally appropriate and expand their capacity to dream and to believe they can make their dreams reality.

The work we do to end summer learning loss remains to be relevant and necessary.

  • Research studies have shown that low income students who lack access to enriching activities generally lose approximately two months of reading achievement and face a number of behavioral risks during the summer months.
  • Our assessment results share that some of our Read Lead CDF Freedom Schools scholars experienced a 4-month increase in reading ability. While 100% of scholars who were tested demonstrated no loss in reading achievement over the six weeks, effectively staunching summer learning loss.

Your contribution helps us to bring high quality summer educational opportunities to the communities we serve.
