About Read Better Be Better
Read Better Be Better (RBBB) is a nonprofit that helps children improve literacy skills and become better learners. We are the only nonprofit that inspires and equips youth to help solve Arizona’s literacy crisis.
RBBB pairs trained 8th-graders with struggling 3rd-graders. Together, they work through our reading comprehension curriculum, followed by fun group activities; all of which are proven to develop literacy skills for broader academic success.
Unlike other after-school programs in Arizona, RBBB benefits two groups of children at significant developmental milestones. 3rd-graders significantly improve reading comprehension and develop an enjoyment of reading. Middle schoolers show increased civic responsibility and begin to read to siblings at home- the best solution for sustained change.
