Be Excellent Be Kind

Read Better Be Better is an after school literacy program. We are the only nonprofit organization in Arizona that engages youth leaders to help solve the state's literacy crisis.

We create change by helping children master reading comprehension in three ways: improving concentration, encouraging an active enjoyment of reading and helping develop a deeper understanding of what is being read. We support basic classroom instruction with additional comprehension strategies to improve proficiency and positively impact future academic success.

RBBB uses trained 6th - 8th grade volunteers to implement a simple, but highly structured afterschool program for 3rd graders.
