Literacy for all will take all of us!






Student selecting books at a Family Reading Celebration

We are working together to ensure every Oakland child learns and loves to read.

We are so grateful for our partners working to make a difference in so many ways – from meeting students’ basic needs knowing it’s hard to learn if hungry, unsheltered, sick, or stressed, to providing engaging and effective learning experiences in and out of school. These individual efforts are even more powerful when they connect, inform, and build on one another. That's why we serve as a hub to build and strengthen a citywide literacy movement in Oakland through opportunities to learn, collaborate, and champion literacy together. Thank you for your support to make this work possible. 

Give today and it will go twice as far!
