Read to Succeed Asheville/Buncombe

Our vision is that all children in our community are skilled and engaged readers. That’s why we train our volunteers to work one-on-one with K-3rd students in our local Asheville City and Buncombe County schools to help them learn to read at grade level.

Students who aren’t reading at grade level by the end of 3rd grade are 4x more likely to drop out of school. Our committed and passionate volunteers work to help close the literacy gap and give students the skills and confidence they need to succeed both in school and in life.
