Our Impact

In a recent online survey, Lead to Read KC Teaching Partners, School Administrators and Reading Mentors overwhelmingly reported that in addition to developing meaningful relationships with students, our program is helping students become stronger readers and develop more positive attitudes about reading. 

And, 97.1 percent of Reading Mentors reported overall satisfaction with our program. 

Many thanks to everyone who shared feedback! You’re helping to improve our classroom program and make Lead To Read KC the easiest, most meaningful volunteer experience in Kansas City.
