Junior Board #GivingTuesday 2019






Thank you to all who have donated so far. We’re inspired by your generosity & have increased our goal to reach even more students. We are so grateful for the support from all of you!

Every child deserves a great story. Read Ahead mentors help them write it.

Children need positive adult role models to thrive. Young people who are mentored -- especially those challenged by poverty -- are more likely to have better school attendance and participation, develop the motivation and skills they need for success in school and in life, and enroll in college.

Since 1991, Read Ahead has paired caring adult mentors with public elementary school students for weekly, one-on-one, reading-based mentoring sessions. Through the foundational experience of reading together, Read Ahead mentors develop in students the confidence and motivation children need to be successful in school and beyond.

But we need your help! Your donation to the Read Ahead Junior Board's #GivingTuesday campaign will allow us to bring the joy of mentoring to over 200 children in Read Ahead's highest need partner schools, helping to unlock their full potential and make their next chapter a great one.

Thank you for your support!
