A thriving community where all children can read with confidence and joy.
About Our Charity
Calgary Reads brings together people, schools, community partners and business to make reading a priority.
We have grown from offering one tutor program to now having over 18 programs and initiatives that work in schools and communities to support children and their families.
We do this because twenty-eight per cent of typically developing children in Alberta entering kindergarten today are already behind their peers in language and literacy skills. We know that if a student doesn’t catch up by grade three, it is unlikely he or she will.
