My son has improved more in the last year than in the previous four years in school. Without this program [Read Together], he would not be where he is.
Lorenlay Diaz, Brunswick
Our two sons thoroughly look forward to their visits each week! Nathan doesn't get angry when he doesn't know a word anymore, he works through it. Jack is interested in reading independently now, which is a staggering change. [Read Together] is something my husband and I are both very grateful for having access to. We certainly wouldn't be able to afford to pay for tutoring otherwise.

For the past year and a half, I have been working with a boy in the Read Together program. Seeing his confidence grow and his progress from reading at a first grade level to almost at grade level (fifth grade) has been amazing. I truly feel this program has changed his life.
