America Reads / America Counts

A nationwide literacy initiative that offers children quality tutors.

America Reads is a national campaign that was initiated in 1997 that challenges every American to help our children learn to read well and independently by the end of elementary school. There are more than 1,200 colleges and universities participating in the America Reads Challenge across the country.

Building on the success of the America Reads Challenge, America Counts was initiated in July 1999. America Counts is designed to help improve student achievement in mathematics. Nationwide, there are approximately 300 colleges and universities participating in America Counts.

Dedicated Adelphi students partner with teachers to tutor students, grades K through 9, at no cost to the participating districts.
