Working together to make a difference in childhood literacy
It takes a community to raise a reader. We’re fortunate to have the support of many people, organizations and foundations who believe in our mission:
Creating positive change in literacy outcomes for children by mobilizing business, education and community to care and act together with ingenuity.
Thank you to the generous members of the Calgary Reads community who work with us to inspire children to read with confidence and joy.
“RBC believes young Canadians deserve every opportunity we can give them to learn, grow and thrive. Literacy is an important part of the toolkit kids need to achieve wellness as their whole selves – mind, body and spirit alike.”
