Description & Locations

Our Tackling Illiteracy program encourages 2nd graders to read in classrooms all over the country and provides each of those children with a visit from a positive role model and a new book to take home. The foundation targets schools with economically disadvantaged kids and communities where we can make the biggest impact.

We are proud to say the following areas have learned about 2nd & 7 and have made our program a part of their community outreach. Thank you to all of our volunteers who are implementing this outreach in their areas!
