Mission

Guided by the fact that literacy is essential to lifelong success, Page Ahead provides new books and develops reading activities that empower at-risk children.

Page Ahead Children's Literacy Program is the leading provider of children's books and literacy services in Washington State. We are dedicated to helping children in need succeed in school by developing strong reading skills. A child who is not reading proficiently at the end of third grade is FOUR times more likely to drop-out of school before graduating than one who is. Page Ahead works to break down barriers to achievement for children in need, and is committed to help all children become successful readers.

Page Ahead serves children, families and communities - with books for children; literacy support for families; and reading resources for communities.
