Impact Reading Center

Helping all children, specifically those most vulnerable, reach grade level in reading.

ABOUT IMPACT READING CENTER

Impact Reading Center (IRC) is a relationally-based, volunteer-driven, intensive reading program which utilizes research-based curriculum and teaching techniques to get students at or above grade level in reading. Its vision is to empower all children, especially those most vulnerable, with the life changing benefits of literacy.

Note: Impact Reading Center does not operate during the summer.  Specific days and times for volunteer sign up will not become available until the end of August 2018. Please leave your contact information by completing the volunteer sign up link and we will contact you the moment they become available.
