Who We Are

Read Charlotte is a ten-year (2015-2025) community initiative that unites families, educators and community partners to improve children’s literacy from birth through third grade. Our goal is to double the percentage of third graders reading on grade level from 39% in 2015 to 80% by 2025. If children can’t read well, they lose confidence, fail in school, and struggle in life.
