Launch Literacy on the Big Day of Giving

Help us launch literacy on the Big Day of Giving by donating to our online virtual tutoring program – STARS (Students & Tutors Achieving Reading Success). Schedule a donation starting April 22. 

If kids aren’t reading at grade level by 4th grade, they will have a hard time keeping up across multiple subjects for years to come. Having a consistent positive adult role model, like a tutor, can improve children’s confidence and performance in all school subjects.
