Giving Guide: AR Kids Read


AR Kids Read nurtures a love for reading through relationships so that every child may one day read on grade level. Reading on grade level is a critical skill for every child. In the early years, children learn to read, but by third grade they must begin to read to learn. AR Kids Read recruits, trains and mobilizes tutors to help struggling students in grades 1-3, build literacy skills and practice reading. Together we can help students build confidence and close the reading gap!
