WHY SPONSOR A STORYTENT PROGRAM?

More than six million children in the United States will experience negative academic, personal and social outcomes every year because of poor reading skills. Children who can’t read proficiently by the 4th grade are up to 15 times more likely to drop-out of school. Sadly, in the U.S., two-thirds of all children and 82% of children in low-income families read below grade level. (Annie E Casey Foundation & NAEP)

Traveling Stories empowers kids by helping them fall in love with reading by the 4th grade through our StoryTent programs in San Diego.
