Team Read’s “secret sauce” is our teen reading coaches. They have a unique ability to connect with and inspire young students, helping them become more confident, capable readers. We’re thrilled to have several long-time coaches and alumni returning to Team Read this June for our summer program, including Kenji Kurose, who tutored for Team Read from 2013-2017. “I’m excited to give back to Team Read and create more change by helping empower new coaches,” he says.

You can empower Team Read coaches and students too! Donate today and your gift will have a dual impact: 2nd-4th graders will gain the reading skills they need for a bright future, and teens will grow professionally and personally through meaningful work experience. Plus, all donations will be matched 1:1, up to $12,500!
