Read Ahead ignites a love of reading in young students through mentoring, improving their confidence as well as their odds for success in school and life.
Read Ahead serves 1,000 students with the help of 1,200 volunteers from our corporate and community partners. We partner with 20 elementary schools throughout Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens, and Jersey City. Students who participate in our program are greatly impacted by having a caring adult meet with them on a weekly basis.
