Read to Succeed is thrilled to celebrate a decade of community-powered literacy programming aimed at helping close the race-based opportunity gap in Asheville and Buncombe County.
Started in 2009 officially by a group of community activists, R2S trained and matched its first tutors with local elementary students in 2010. Our programming has grown from one school to over 12 schools and community partners, and our scope of work has expanded from K-3 tutoring to early childhood support and community/family engagement.
