REACH provides literacy programming
for adults and youth in
Sioux Falls and the surrounding area
REACH Literacy is working to expand programming at our Western Mall location with our new Literacy Center. Stay tuned for more details.
This program focuses on improving basic skills workers need to retain present jobs, advance their careers, or increase productivity. Participants are assessed to determine their strengths and areas of challenge. REACH works with employers to adapt the curriculum to meet the varying needs of the workplace.
Our BEE a Reader program pairs volunteers via Zoom with emerging second-grade readers from several Sioux Falls area classrooms. These consistent, positive interactions aim to help strengthen student confidence in their reading abilities.
BEE a Reader meets from February through April and culminates in an optional in-person celebration, allowing students and volunteers to commemorate their reading success. Students can select from a curated assortment of books to take home to promote their reading practice over the summer.
"When you learn to read you will be born again…and you will never be quite so alone again."
