Reading Is Fundamental


Did you know that 34% of children entering Kindergarten lack the basic language skills needed to learn how to read and 65% of children in 4th grade are reading below grade level?

And in the summer, up to 80% of children will lose up to three months of learning because they lack access to books and learning resources? 

Together, we can turn those numbers around!

RIF’s Read for Success is a reading intervention program that addresses the reading backslide that typically happens over the summer. Gains in reading were made by 96% of kids participating in this program.
