We. Read. Together.
We nurture a love for reading through relationships.
A Big Vision for Arkansas
We engage community members as volunteer reading tutors to serve students reading below grade level. We ensure access to books for students who need them most. Through trainings, presentations, and collaborations, we build awareness of Arkansas’s literacy equity needs and how to effectively address our current literacy crisis. We do this so EVERY child reads on grade level.
