Help a child to read and transform their future

We believe in the power of early literacy to address educational inequities and racial disparities in our society. That's why UT's Charles A. Dana Center created Literacy First, an outreach program that partners with local elementary schools to provide daily one-to-one literacy tutoring. Your gift will be used to ensure more children are reading at or above grade level by third grade.

"While compiling student graphs yesterday, I was in awe of how much growth the students have made. Their growth is due in large part to your organization, positivity, caring and ability to motivate students, which makes them want to read and to succeed."
