Read with Malcolm
Malcolm Mitchell´s Youth Literacy Initiative:
Read with Malcolm is a youth literacy initiative founded by Super Bowl Champion and Author Malcolm Mitchell. The organization’s goals are to introduce book ownership to students in households where reading is not a priority and to improve literacy in schools with below grade-level reading skills.
SCHOOL VISIT READING RALLY PROGRAM
Through the School Visit Reading Rally program, book ownership is provided to students with below grade-level reading skills. “The Magician’s Hat” reinforces Malcolm’s broader message that reading is a necessary skill to compete effectively in life and to reach one’s full potential.
EARLY LEARNING READING INITIATIVE PROGRAM
By providing copies of “The Magician’s Hat” to young students, Read with Malcolm enables young readers to own an age-appropriate book that they can read at home and use to develop reading skills critical for future success.
Malcolm's Interst is not only in sharing his personal literacy story but also in creating "Reading Ambassadors" in middle and high school age students. Schools, organizations and individuals can be reading ambassadors.
MATCHING GRANT PROGRAM
For Read with Malcolm programs that involve the purchase of books, if a grant is awarded, Share the Magic Foundation will match those funds provided by the school and/or their community partners to Title 1 schools with 90% of the students receiving Free/Reduced Meal Assistance.
Help us give a child the opportunity to Read to Succeed.
