Reading Partners

Plans for Growth

Within three years, Reading Partners plans to increase the number of youth it serves annually, from 8,200 in 2015 to over 11,000 in 2017, an increase of 37 percent. It has expanded its reach in California, Colorado, Maryland, New York, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Texas, Washington, and Washington, DC, and established new sites in Minnesota and North Carolina with support from the True North Fund. It has also established sites in three Colorado cities with support from another Social Innovation Fund intermediary.


Over the next few years, Reading Partners will strive to improve fourth-grade reading proficiency and raise national awareness about its importance through its LIFT10 initiative, which seeks to increase reading proficiency by 10 percentage points in Tulsa, DC, and Oakland.
