Read Better Be Better

Founded as a response to Arizona’s literacy crisis, Read Better Be Better (RBBB) is an after-school reading comprehension and leadership program designed to help students become better readers, leaders and learners.

Arizona is ranked 45th in the nation for childhood literacy and 48th for Pre-K–12th education.

RBBB’s mission is to connect young readers and youth leaders to inspire a love of literacy and learning. To do this, RBBB pairs a 2nd- to 4th-grade “Reader” with a middle school to high school “Leader,” allowing the Leader to improve their leadership skills while helping their Reader improve their literacy skills.
