Read to Me Project was founded to address the alarming 70% of children in Monterey County who are starting kindergarten as much as two years behind – most of whom never catch up in school. It is the only program reaching into no/low literate, low socioeconomic homes of children 6 months to 5 years old to help establish their early literacy skills and knowledge. Read to Me Project is proven to remedially benefit their brothers and sisters in under-performing 4th, 5th and 6th grade classes as well. In fact, student participant scores improved on average, 68% on standard assessments compared to students who are not in the program.
Donations are Read to Me Project’s lifeline for providing children in low literate families their lifeTIME of equity and greater opportunity. Your funding support will help prevent the root cause of most societal issues – low literacy. Please consider the donation options below.
