RSR 2014 Winter Update
Tutoring Program Expanding
Guiding the Way...
Board of Directors

The success and momentum of the "Star Readers" program continues in 2014. Volunteer tutors will now work with students in  21 elementary schools within 8 school districts. The most recent school district addition is Schuylkill Valley. It is exciting to establish new partnerships, reinforcing the continued commitment of more than 220 trained volunteers.

The educational and business communities demonstrate tremendous leadership to the initiative. This support, combined with the dedication of the volunteers and RSR 2013 Progress Report partners, will help create a lasting impact on students' success.

Read the 2013 Progress Report on the Ready. Set. READ! website to learn more about the initiatives progress and accomplishments.

By the numbers: 4,000+ hours have been dedicated to RSR governance, planning or direct service activities

A Board of Directors was recently established to provide leadership and guidance around the development and growth of Ready.Set.READ!. A primary focus of the group will be to create a strategic plan to identify the strategies and outcomes to guide the initiative's work.  We extend our appreciation to these individuals.
