Partnering for Better Communities
Deutsche Bank Americas expands Raising A Reader through preschool programs in the New York area.
In the most recent parent pre/post surveys, there was a statistically significant increase in the amount of time spent reading together and the amount of books read between adult and child. Results from the surveys also revealed a 19% increase in the level of parent awareness regarding the importance of home literacy.
In Fall 2015, the partnership continued with 200 additional children in the Bronx. With the Deutsche Bank’s support, more than 1,000 children and families have already participated in the program. One parent mentions, “I really like the red bags and the books. We read every afternoon and since having the bags we read more often. We love having a variety of books.”
If you are located in New York and want to support Raising A Reader in your community, volunteers and guest readers are appreciated in preschool classrooms.
