HandOn Broward’s Literacy Program is a collaborative partnership of agencies, community stakeholders, and schools committed to every child reading at grade level by the 3rd grade. Research shows that by 3rd grade proficiency in reading allows the child to go from learning to read, to reading to learn. This skill is necessary to master the subject matter they will encounter in the fourth grade. Four out of every five student in low income households fail to achieve this critical milestone.




HandsOn Broward inspires, equips and mobilizes thousands of people each year to do important

work such as being a literacy mentor, reading coach or tutor.
