What We Do

Overview

Reach Out and Read leverages two extraordinary forces to improve early literacy and education outcomes: the power of parents and the influence of medical providers.

Reach Out and Read is uniquely positioned to help our youngest children arrive at school ready to read, learn, and succeed.  As the only early literacy nonprofit that works through pediatric healthcare providers, we have unparalleled access to young children, many of whom are not enrolled in high-quality early education programs – and their parents. Nearly 90% of all young children see a healthcare provider at least annually for a check-up.
