Free Literacy Program that Cultivates Youth Voice and Leadership

Read to Lead is a fun, engaging, and relevant way to blast through traditional reading barriers and promote workplace readiness and skill building. By playing games, students increase reading achievement, find motivation, and see - often for the first time - a real connection between learning, career aspirations, and their futures. Read to Lead is geared for students in 5th - 9th grades and provides free community action projects, coaching, and implementation support for an enriching after school and summer program experience. The Read to Lead staff is committed to turn-key implementation and support to build the capacity of directors and youth facilitators. Learn more about the program.
