Third grade reading proficiency is a key indicator of future success. Ready.Set.READ! is a collaboration among the United Way of Berks County, the educational and business communities and community organizations working together to ensure reading proficiency for students by the end of third grade.

 


Volunteer tutoring, parent education and community awareness are just a few of the ways Ready.Set.READ! will accomplish this goal. Learn more about RSR's multi-faceted approach and discover the volunteer opportunities available.
