We empower parents to create better futures for their families through literacy education.
The Power of Parents.
With our free classes, low-income parents gain the skills to thrive as parents and community members while transferring important literary skills to their children.
Every Child Deserves a Great First Teacher
Many of our students earn high school equivalency degrees and get better jobs, and some go on to college.
It’s Graduation Day!
Through our Books of Their Own program, we provide at least 10 books to each of our students' children, to fuel their love of reading.

After enrolling in our classes, the rate of parents reading to their children every day has increased by 50% – a key predictor of language development and school readiness.
