About the Organization

Read Better Be Better (RBBB) is a non-profit organization, founded in 2014 to address Arizona's literacy crisis. Read Better Be Better inspires and equips middle school youth leaders to help third-grade students struggling with reading comprehension. The program trains 6th-8th graders to lead 3rd graders through a curriculum that empowers both students. Third graders gain the literacy skills needed to achieve academic and life-long success, and middle schoolers engage in service learning. RBBB's organizational values are simple: Be Excellent. Be Kind. These values define the organization, the programs and the expectations.
