Your Support Changes Lives

AR Kids Read’s vision is that EVERY child will read on grade level. AR Kids Read Partners are vital to our volunteer-based model. They:

  • Invest $1,500 or more annually and/or provide a minimum of five tutors to AR Kids Read (AKR). Their annual financial investment will support a designated partner school(s) including training, resources (tutoring books and supplies), and data collection/evaluation. This investment will underwrite a portion of costs for 5 to 10 tutors serving 10 to 20 elementary students (each receiving free books for their home libraries).
  • Designate a Partner Contact within their organization. The Partner Contact:
    o Serves as a liaison between the organization and AKR.
    o Works with AKR to launch an effective internal tutor recruitment campaign. AKR will provide marketing materials to assist with this effort.

We truly value our partners. They receive quarterly digital digests with updates regarding AKR. We spotlight our partners via social media, our website, and/or email communication and strive to regularly show our appreciation for their support.
