Over 30 million adults nationwide struggle with everyday basic life tasks!  Read Up! knows that there are many people in this county who would benefit by improving their skills, so we have made it especially easy and comfortable to get help!

Read Up! participants will improve all areas of their lives, by building skills to:

  • Read and write better

Read Up! can help students with pre-school children (under 5 years of age) take advantage of the Family Reading Program and enjoy storytelling, word games, and fun reading for the whole family!
