Read Ahead is making a firm investment in New York City's public schools throughout Manhattan, Queens, and Brooklyn by pairing elementary school children with caring adults in our weekly reading-based mentoring program. Students in our program grow and mature into young adults who are primed for success in learning and in life. But the price of serving just one student can range from $250 - $1,000 depending on the cost of reading materials, mentor training, and background checks. 

Read Ahead is thrilled to announce its new Page Turners program - a monthly giving platform that subsidizes the cost of a young student to be in the program. Your support will allow our students to explore new words and new worlds, through the stories and conversations they share with their mentors during lunchtime sessions each week.
