Catch Up & Read

  • Catch Up & Read believes in the power of literacy to change lives and communities. Since 2009, Catch Up & Read has been on a mission to equip children to read on grade level by the end of 3rd grade so they can graduate from high school and break the generational cycle of poverty.

    Its focus is to equip teachers with evidence-based literacy practices that give 1st-3rd grade children from underserved communities the reading foundation they need to succeed in school and life. Catch Up & Read currently works with 20 Title I elementary schools in Dallas County, training over 150 teachers and providing teacher-directed tutoring for approximately 850 1st-3rd grade students.

    If you’re interested in serving on this board, please contact Carol Goglia at carol@catchupandread.org.
