Transforming lives through literacy

Achieve Now's mission is to bring all children to grade-level reading. Our vision is a simple one: that all students gain the basic skills necessary to succeed in school and life. Our goal is to move 6,000 students to grade-level reading by June 2020. 

 

 

Making a difference in Philadelphia

We recruit and train volunteers—adults, middle school and high school students—to coach younger learners one-on-one and in small groups. Our proven literacy program gives our coaches the tools they need to deliver powerful, highly effective reading instruction.
