A key part of our mission is to advocate for the public policy positions that support the work we’re doing. We hope you will take the opportunity to consider these issues and we look forward to working with you to help guide more Hoosiers on the path to self-sufficiency. View Agenda »



Connecting volunteer readers and
tutors with children who need help most.

The numbers don’t lie: students who are tutored
through ReadUP perform better in reading and are
more likely to succeed in school. But they can’t get
the help they need without volunteers like
you. Through our signature program, ReadUP
matches volunteer with local  schools to help kids
get on track — and stay on track — with grade-level literacy. watch video


Be the difference.

For most Central Indiana children, caring adults are the difference between academic success and failure. Just one hour a week is all it takes to impact the life of a child. Can you spare an hour?
