The Literacy Champions Society

Building a Movement for Educational Equity

What is the Literacy Champions Society?

literacy champions society

The Literacy Champions Society is a diverse community of supporters across the country who have made a significant personal investment in our work. Our coalition has joined together under a common belief: every student deserves the chance to succeed in school, to think critically, and to reach their potential. This is only possible if we build a movement to support the 65% of students nationwide who are currently reading behind grade level. Focusing on early literacy and high-dosage tutoring is a proven way to advance educational equity. Our next chapter at Reading Partners will be characterized by bold, innovative action that will impact exponentially more students year over year in true partnership with communities. And our literacy champions help us get there. 

As literacy champions, we will learn together, build community, and support each other in this critical work. Join us for:

  • The Reading Partners Literary Society – A biannual virtual gathering of supporters across the country to engage in dialogue about literacy and equity. We share, learn, and grow together in our shared vision of a future where all children are strong readers and empowered learners.
  • Exclusive site visits – (virtual and in-person) at a local reading center to see our work in action and how your investment has a direct impact on the students we serve
  • Reading Partners events – (virtual and in-person) throughout the year, we will engage experts in education, literacy, and educational equity to share about their work, and Reading Partners leaders will highlight the latest innovations and updates on our programs

Additionally, you’ll learn about the impact we are making together as we share student stories, impact reports, and other exclusive updates throughout the year.
