Welcome to Reading Legacies

Reading Legacies Reading Legacies

Our organization is a 501c3 whose mission is dedicated to empowering children and youth as valued family and community members through intergenerational shared-reading experiences. We place high priority on the goal of reaching out to children and youth who are at-risk of having a solid educational foundation for success in school and life.

Our strategy is to surround children and youth with supportive family members and exemplary community role models who will regularly participate in this shared-reading experience with them. To that end, we have established two programs, Family Connections & Community Connections, reaching into areas where at-risk children, youth, and families can be positively impacted with our curriculum and processes.

Our resources are utilized almost exclusively on our programs, with only 15% on administrative and/or fund development activities. Management of a large team of trained and motivated volunteers requires staff attention and interaction. To that end, we have developed a Training Curriculum with regular site visits and support.
