Did you know? 86% of Arizona’s low-income 3rd graders are not reading at grade level, making them four times less likely to graduate from high school.
Read Better Be Better (RBBB) is an after-school literacy program that helps children improve their reading skills in order to become better learners. We are the only nonprofit organization that inspires and equips Arizona youth to help us solve this literacy crisis.
How does it work? The program pairs trained 8th grade students with struggling 3rd grade readers. Together, they work through our proven curriculum, followed by fun group activities; all of which are proven to develop literacy skills as a foundation for broader academic success.
What do the kids have to say about RBBB?
“I loved the kids I was working with and knowing that I was helping them… It helped me be more responsible!” (Arianna, 8th grade)
“I used to struggle, and now I don’t.” (Daviana, 3rd grade)
“This program changed me by showing me how important it is to help younger kids.” (Sara, 8th grade)
