Literacy is a basic right

Help us transform lives, empower adults with literacy, life and work skills!

REACH is a nonprofit that provides literacy instruction and experiences for adult and youth readers each year through ground-breaking tutoring programs and the innovative use of donated books in our beautiful secondhand bookstore.

Our literacy program transforms adults reading and writing skills through experienced volunteer tutors who deliver innovative instruction, are passionate about education, and serve as positive role models. Adult learners feel supported in a safe learning environment for practice, exploration, and language lessons. Our BEE a Reader program pairs a volunteer with emerging readers via zoom. These consistent, positive interactions aim to provide students with a dependable role model who works to strengthen their confidence with regard to reading.

Through our REACH a Teacher Grants, we provide readers of all ages with engaging, appropriate, and high-quality books. Each year we provide thousands of books to schools and nonprofits across the Sioux Empire.

Funding for our work comes in large part from the sale of donated books at our fantastic REACH a Reader bookstore, as well as online and at special events.
