REACH Literacy is a nonprofit organization that provides literacy instruction and experiences for adult and youth readers through flexible tutoring programs and the innovative reuse of donated books in our beautiful secondhand bookstore. Our experienced and passionate teachers and volunteers, deliver innovative instruction and serve as positive role models and mentors for adults and youth.
Our Everyday English programs are designed for adults who are learning English as a Second Language. They may already speak or understand basic English, but desire to increase their confidence speaking and communicating in English for personal or employment related reasons. Our flexible curriculum removes barriers and increases access to practice opportunities.
Our BEE a Reader programs pair volunteers to read with emerging and struggling readers via zoom. These consistent, positive interactions aim to help strengthen a young person's confidence in their reading abilities.
Each year we give away thousands of engaging, appropriate, and high-quality books to schools and nonprofits across the Sioux Empire. And, our REACH a Teacher Grants, help Elementary and Middle School teachers build their classroom libraries.
Funding for our work comes from sponsorships, donations, grants, reading memberships, and the sale of donated books at our fantastic REACH a Reader bookstore. We also host special annual events like our READ-A-THON, Summer Reading Program, and Harry Potter Birthday Party.
