Our Mission

Our mission is to inspire today's children to become tomorrow's leaders, one page at a time.

We envision a world where every child has a book to read and somebody to read it with them.

 

Research has proven how important it is for parents to spend time reading with their children, especially during the formative years before they begin their formal education. Specifically, studies show the crucial role that one-on-one reading plays in a child's development of not only strong literacy skills, but in their overall growth as an enthusiastic student and empathetic individual.

 

Sadly, not every child is provided these valuable growth opportunities. Research shows that children in low-income communities are less likely to have been read with consistently prior to beginning kindergarten. These children enter school already behind their peers--a gap that oftens proves to be insurmountable.

 

The Same Page Foundation believes that this can be changed. We aim to pair passionate volunteers with these young children in hopes of providing them with the one-on-one reading opportunities they may not be getting at home.

 

Currently, the Same Page Foundation is partnering with the Liberty Community Center in Delaware, OH, bringing our volunteers into the center to read with the children whom the LCC serves. As we continue to improve our program and spread the word about our mission, we hope to expand throughout the Central Ohio community, and eventually as far as this journey takes us.
