Type of Charity
  • Education & Literacy

Our mission is the support the social, emotional and reading skills that are foundational to student success by advancing our literacy platform and mobilizing community volunteers.


Lead to Read KC is a children's literacy nonprofit working to tackle low literacy rates in the greater Kansas City area. We mobilize community volunteers, called Reading Mentors, to read one-to-one with students in first - third grades. We offer a high-dosage tutoring program, and author partnership program and a robust book distribution program, called Reading is Everywhere, where we place baskets of books in places where children are waiting. With over 6o locations, we are always in need of books in good condition!
