Read 2 Lead’s Early Readers Program pairs young students between the ages of 5 and 7 with a reading buddy. Here, the buddies practice reading aloud with these young students to improve their vocabulary, comprehension, and language skills. Since 2020, we have read for over 3,000 minutes. This program has been virtual due to the COVID-19 Pandemic.
Our Summer Reading Program is a free reading program for U.S. students from Kindergarten to 12th grade. During this reading program, students are encouraged to read a number of books to earn prizes. When we launched this program in 2021, we had 30 participants who read 275 books combined!
