Reading Matters

In fact, literacy can play a life-saving role in a young person's development!  Words Alive is leading a movement in San Diego County to ensure that every student and every family has the opportunity to make the connection to reading that will open opportunities for life success. 

Words Alive has launched a 1,000-day campaign to support our vision! How can you help us?

Honor our commitment to reach 5,000+ students and families every year! Invest in innovation to create an even more meaningful intervention for these students and families. Invest in scale to bring our programs to new classrooms and families in San Diego County!

Join our movement!

Words Alive is leading a movement to make reading matter for low-income and under-served students and families. We believe this skill will help them change their stories.  We are almost exclusively funded through the support of individuals, foundations and corporations committed to this movement.

Our goal is to reach 5,000 children, teens and families this school year

LITERACY IS A FUNDAMENTAL SKILL NEEDED FOR LIFE SUCCESS, BUT 48% OF SAN DIEGO COUNTY 3RD GRADERS TESTED BELOW PROFICIENT IN READING AND LANGUAGE ARTS.
