Read Ahead's Page Turners program is a monthly giving platform that allows for individuals who are not currently affiliated with one of our partners to participate in our weekly reading-based mentoring program. Through Page Turners, caring and committed individuals have the opportunity to make a lasting difference in a child's life through mentoring, while also providing vital financial support for Read Ahead's program.

The cost of serving just one Read Ahead student can exceed $1,000, including the cost of reading materials, mentor training, background checks, and program staff support. By committing $21 a month (or $250 annually), Page Turners help offset these costs and make it possible to extend Read Ahead's program to even more children at our partner elementary schools throughout Manhattan, Queens, and Brooklyn.

Through Read Ahead, mentors and mentees have the opportunity to explore new words and new worlds through the stories and conversations you share together. Thanks to Read Ahead's Page Turners, that many more promising young children will have access the support, confidence, and skills they need to be successful in school and beyond.
