Partnering for Better Communities
Deutsche Bank Americas expands Raising A Reader through preschool programs in the New York area.
In the most recent parent pre/post surveys, there was a statistically significant increase in the amount of time spent reading together and the amount of books read between adult and child. Results from the surveys also revealed a 19% increase in the level of parent awareness regarding the importance of home literacy.
In Fall 2015, the partnership continued with 200 additional children in the Bronx. With the Deutsche Bankâ€™s support, more than 1,000 children and families have already participated in the program. One parent mentions, â€œI really like the red bags and the books. We read every afternoon and since having the bags we read more often. We love having a variety of books.â€
If you are located in New York and want to support Raising A Reader in your community, volunteers and guest readers are appreciated in preschool classrooms.
