A life of opportunity begins with a love of reading.

Who We Are

Let’s talk about upward mobility. Children who can’t read proficiently by third grade are four times more likely to drop out of high school. More than 60,000 underserved kids in the Charlotte area are at risk of falling behind. It’s a solvable problem and you can help.
