    ONE TO ONE needs your support!

    Since 1989, ONE TO ONE Literacy has supported children from diverse and underserved communities to help develop to their full potential. Our approach is to initiate early, critical intervention into the lives of at-risk children. Children who do not have an adult to read with them at home, or for whom English is not their first language, fall behind in reading and literacy skills and never catch up. It is these children, who might otherwise fall through the cracks in the system, who most benefit from ONE TO ONE’s program.

    The program is available at no cost to schools or students. The ONE TO ONE Literacy Society is a registered charity and our program is completely funded by grants and private donations.

    Your gift will be used to purchase new books and literacy resources for the student, train new volunteer tutors and provide program support to the students, volunteer tutors and schools.
