Proceeds from the Walk for Literacy support Traveling Stories, a 501c3 nonprofit that empowers students to achieve their dreams. 

Did you know that most students who are poor readers in 3rd grade will remain poor readers in high school? Children who cannot read proficiently by the 4th grade are up to 15x more likely to drop out of school. Students who don’t graduate are not qualified for 90% of jobs and earn on average just $23,000 per year.

At Traveling Stories, we believe every child has the ability to achieve, but many lack the tools and support they need to succeed. For children, our programs focus on building confidence, agency and strong reading skills by the 4th grade. For teens and young adults, our programs focus on developing leadership and job readiness skills.

Traveling Stories engages with students in empowering ways from 1st grade to graduation!
