A signature program of The Foundation, Read2Succeed engages over a hundred volunteers each year to provide reading assistance to first and second graders. In addition to recruiting, training and placing volunteers, The Foundation also provides needed resources in the classroom to support and advance this important program.
Research shows first and second grades as critical developmental years – when reading becomes fundamental to advanced concepts and skills. It’s also a significant social and emotional period in a child’s life, when positive encouragement and confidence-building are essential. Read2Succeed expands on both aspects, with a focus on building up our children.
Read2Succeed focuses on improving reading for first and second graders who are mid to mid-low level readers. This program is available to all Orange County public elementary schools -- not just Title I schools.
All it takes is 30-45 minutes per week to change a child’s life for a lifetime. Interested in volunteering? Get started today!
