Our Programs

Serving children from primarily low-income families, Page Ahead collaborates with elementary schools, tutoring programs, Head Start and other preschool programs, tribal libraries, migrant centers, homeless shelters, and teen parenting programs across Washington State to improve the reading and language skills of at-risk children.

Book Distribution Program

Provides new books (up to three books to each child per year) to read, share, and cherish.

A child's pride in learning to read is a key element in achieving literacy. By providing children with new books to keep, Page Ahead enhances the relationship between parent and child and the relationship between child and book.

To excite children about reading, books are distributed through motivational events held at partner sites. This year, more than 400 motivational reading events will be held as part of Page Ahead's book distribution program.

Family Involvement Program

Educates and encourages parents to read with their children. While access to books is important, it is the family that makes the greatest difference in a child's academic success.
