Who We Serve

Page Ahead joins with preschools, elementary schools, early childhood centers, migrant centers, homeless shelters, teen parenting programs, and social service agencies across Washington State to promote motivational reading events, provide new books to children, and encourage parents to read with their children. Since it's inception in 1990, Page Ahead has distributed more than 2.7 million new books to over 850,000 at-risk children.

Page Ahead serves children from birth to age 12 who are considered to be at risk: those who receive free lunches or live below the federal poverty level, receive English language tutoring, or read below grade level. By working with at-risk children early in their learning process, Page Ahead helps them build strong reading skills and avoid the problems created by illiteracy.
