Reading Partners celebrates twenty years of engaging communities and empowering students
The 2018-19 school year marks 20 years of Reading Partners positively impacting students across the country through literacy. To date, our volunteers have delivered more than 1.5 million tutoring sessions to students most in need of literacy support.
As we reflect on the prior two decades and look ahead to the future, we are thrilled to unveil a fresh new look. In this milestone year, we will reinvigorate our fight to ensure all students have the reading skills they need to succeed.
Our new look
Our new logo was designed to represent our mission of helping children become lifelong readers on a skyward trajectory to reaching their full potential. It symbolizes the connection, partnership, achievement, and joy that is fostered in our reading centers every day.
Without a doubt, our students and volunteer are at the heart of everything we do. We took inspiration from the partnerships they forge, and transformed that connection into a new visual identity.
As a true team effort, the logo was developed with support and input from Reading Partners’ staff, AmeriCorps members, volunteers, and donors. Our friends at Collins + Wilson and Ashton Design provided expert knowledge to craft the finished product.
How to get involved
While Reading Partners may look a bit different today than in years past, our core work remains steadfast. We are more focused than ever on our mission to engage community members and empower students through reading. We are driven to continue the momentum achieved over the past 20 years by further engaging the broader communities we serve.
Here are some ways you can help kickstart the next 20 years of student success:
- Volunteer – To mark 20 years, we are asking for more volunteers to connect (or reconnect) within their communities. Will you help empower a student today by signing up to volunteer?
- Donate – Please help us continue to have a positive impact on students for the next 20 years. Consider a 20th anniversary gift to kick off the 2018-19 school year and help us create more stories of student success.
- Spread the word – Our research points to our volunteers, AmeriCorps members, and donors as the primary drivers propelling the Reading Partners mission. Please tell your family, friends, and colleagues about Reading Partners.
We thank you for your engagement with Reading Partners and the community. Learn more about our 20 years of impact and stay tuned for more updates throughout this milestone year.
