The Literacy Lab

About The Literacy Lab

The Literacy Lab staff believe that literacy is a human right. They believe that all children deserve to learn how to read. We reflect the urgency of this issue in our mission and core values. The Literacy Lab serves children from age three through grade 3. We partner with school districts to help close the literacy gap largely by embedding full-time, rigorously-trained tutors in early childhood centers and elementary schools. Watch video to learn more
