At READ USA INC, We…
…Provide low income students access to books of their choice.
…Provide summer tutoring jobs for struggling teens.
…Support a culture of literacy for lifelong learning.
For $10 each, every student in an entire Title 1 elementary school or community center in the highest poverty areas chooses 3 brand new books from thousands of award winning titles to own!
We run the book fairs and manage the volunteers! No overhead costs! Just the BEST volunteer experience ever with established education groups and community partners.
Matching funds by Scholastic not only doubles the value of book ownership for the children with their 100% match, but helps to refresh classroom libraries at the participating schools.
READ USA provides tutoring jobs to struggling teens from low income neighborhoods which promotes reading gains for the teen tutors as well as the elementary school students they’ll lead.
