Wouldn't it be wonderful if all children could read?
Better Basics, Inc. is a non-profit United Way agency that provides a variety of programs to schools to help students who may be be struggling with their reading skills.
It all began in 1994, with one elementary school in Birmingham. Better Basics has grown a bit since that time, having been invited to more than 60 schools in and around Birmingham.
Their mission is "to advance literacy by providing intervention and enrichment in high-need schools". Thousands of students have benefited by the many books, enrichment programs, and tutoring that the agency provides.
Along with teachers and staff, many volunteers are needed to provide young readers with the help they need to improve their reading and learning skills.
To learn more, or if you would like to find out how to become a volunteer or a financial supporter, please visit Better Basics website.
