Our Mission

Project READS helps students in first to third grade make progress to achieve grade level reading.


Our Vision

All Allen County students will read at grade level by the completion of third grade.

Call out for Volunteers!

 Do you love reading? Do you have time to help students in our community learn to love reading too? Then volunteer with us!

This school year, we have ten sites meeting in person that need capable, friendly adults to boost literacy here in Allen County.  You’ll be partnered one-on-one with a student from an area school to read and work on literacy skills together for one hour once a week.

If you haven’t heard yet, we are excited to confirm that Project READS will be joining The Literacy Alliance team. As of September 1, we’ll be combining forces to eliminate illiteracy in our community. Collectively, we’ll be able to provide one-on-one assistance for students in first, second, and third grades AND classes to prepare adults in our community to receive their high school equivalency diploma.

This partnership is an excellent move for us, and we’re proud to be a part of the team. We hope that, together, we’ll make even more of an impact on our community. We’ll be sure to keep you updated as we go through this transition and let you know of any new developments along the way. Stay tuned!
