We empower children and youth as valued community members through intergenerational shared-reading experiences. We believe that reading together bonds families, communities and generations through sharing in a common experience, forming meaningful relationships and sparking smiles and conversations that are cherished for months and years to come. We also believe that when you give, you gain. And, when generations give side by side, entire communities unite. Each year, over 200 Reading Legacies volunteers, ranging from teens to seniors, facilitate read aloud opportunities for under-resourced children and for families separated by incarceration. Relationships are strengthened through the joy of reading together and children are better prepared for school. We invite you to explore our work further and become part of the effort.
