Did You Know?

43 million US adults and even more children possess low literacy skills.

Children who read at least 20 minutes a day are exposed to almost 2 million words per year.

People aged 15–44 in the US spend 10 minutes or less per day reading.

Reading increases emotional intelligence, and consequently, children's career outlook.

6 additional minutes of reading per day can significantly improve kids’ reading performance.

Reading fiction can make children a better decision-maker.

Our History

Everything Started with a Book!

What’s the timeline of the Let’s Read Together Literacy program?

  • This is a 12-month program

  • After Orientation, a Training Session will cover:

    • Expectations 

    • A demonstration of what reading aloud looks and sounds like 

    • How to record reading aloud and sending the recording to LFC 

  • Every month there will be a 45-minute zoom meeting with both families and Youth Readers to share experiences and common challenges and successes. There will be breakout rooms for youth and for families to connect.

 

  • Every week a member of the LFC will contact each family and Youth Reader to check-in on how they are doing. This will be a chance to talk over successes and difficulties. The Youth Reader will thus get feedback on that week’s recordings.

 

  • New books and payments will be delivered monthly.

Youth readers can choose to return previous books or keep them.
