Our Results

We get measurable results. This is the reason we do what we do. Empirical data is essential to measuring the success and efficacy of our literacy model. We are one of the few nonprofit literacy organizations that have independent, peer-reviewed studies that measure our results. That’s why we mean it when we say, “Don’t just take our word for it.”

Change childrens’ lives through reading, and you transform the future of the world.

— Elizabeth Johnston, Program Author, Reading In Motion —

National Expansion

After 35 successful years in Chicago, Reading In Motion is now expanding into new sites in Las Vegas, Nevada, allowing us to make a difference in thousands more lives.

The 2017/2018 school marked our first year of serving students in Las Vegas as we partnered with four Pinecrest Academy Schools. Our results in our initial year went beyond expectations by 34%, which equated to getting 98% of students reading at grade level.

In the 2018/2019 school year, we are expanding our footprint within Pinecrest Academy and Clark County School District schools.

If you are interested in helping to bring Reading In Motion to more schools, please contact our Director of Education, Kristen Walter, at kwalter@readinginmotion.org.

Today a reader, tomorrow a leader.
