A FIGHT WORTH FIGHTING

The inability to read proficiently puts today's young people at greater risk of unemployment, poverty, and poor health later in life – greatly impacting our communities and our nation.

That's why we are committed to this fight. So far, Coaching for Literacy has conducted 75 Fight for Literacy Games with 37 NCAA partners, helped by 25 local organizations across 11 states, funding 50 literacy projects on behalf of 8,000 children. Join us.
