Uplift Literacy’s mission is to maximize lifelong success for underserved children by improving their reading proficiency – at school, at home and in their communities.
WHO WE ARE
Uplift Literacy is a Miami-based 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that believes literacy is the cornerstone to lifelong success. We partner with schools in underserved communities to empower children with the necessary literacy skills and resources to read proficiently by the end of 3rd grade, a milestone that is a significant indicator of a child’s future educational development. Uplift literacy provides free, research-based interventions and tutoring to students in grades PreK-3 to cultivate every child’s full potential and ensure they are prepared for the transition from “learning to read to reading to learn.” In addition, our organization educates families on tools that can be used to support literacy development at home and also promotes a love for reading through our free book distribution.
