Our Mission

Every child deserves to be able to read proficiently in order to learn and grow in their education. AR Kids Read is a high-impact community service strategy which leverages the power of caring volunteers who care to help solve this problem. Our mission is to improve the future of Arkansas children and families by advancing literacy education through community engagement and tutoring so that all children can read proficiently by the end of third grade.
