It takes effort to ensure children have the skills to succeed in life –but the result is a big win for everyone. That's why we fight.

85% of juveniles who cycle through the juvenile court system cannot read. What's more, they are exponentially more likely to commit crimes as adults.

POVERTY

Illiterate kids grow into illiterate adults – and 43% live in poverty if they are at the low end of the proficiency scale. (Only 4% of literate adults live in poverty.)

DIGNITY

32 million adults in the U.S. are illiterate, living more challenging lives than they likely would if they could read. Our kids still have a chance. Help us fight.
