Read Better Be Better (RBBB) is an Arizona nonprofit that focuses on improving child literacy, specifically at the 3rd grade level. Students who do not read proficiently by the end of 3rd grade are four times less likely than their peers to graduate high school. RBBB partners struggling 3rd grade Readers with at-risk 6th-8th grade mentor Leaders to meet twice a week for 10 weeks and work through structured curriculum to improve reading comprehension, concentration, and the enjoyment of reading. Learn more about this organization in a video we produced Pre-Covid HERE.
Valley of the Sun United Way is a proud partner of RBBB. We fight to ensure kids succeed by helping them be proficient readers! To learn more visit: readbetterbebetter.org
