Coaching for Literacy was founded on the principle that every individual is born with dignity and the opportunity to determine their futures. The ability to read has a dramatic impact on future opportunities for all students.
Children who do not read on level by the end of Grade 3 have only a 1 in 8 chance of ever catching up and are 4 times more likely to drop out of school.
COVID-19 has shuttered many school districts for the remainder of the year and it will have the biggest effect on those students that were already behind on their reading scores. The true impact will take time to unfold but now it is more important than ever for Coaching for Literacy to continue bringing awareness to the cause and the literacy programs we support.
Please join us and #Fight4Literacy. By helping to keep our doors open, you help ensure we continue the conversation about illiteracy and help raise money to provide tutoring, books and other resources to children across the country.
We know what an uncertain time this is for everyone, and we understand that there are many individuals and organizations in need. If you’re in a position to support us, please donate today.
