Our Reading Family engages families with literacy and supports them in developing a love of reading, together.
Each ORF cohort meets weekly, for six consecutive weeks. At each of the six sessions, there are activities for students and enrichment opportunities for parents/guardians, as well as portions of the program where families and kids learn, laugh, and share stories together!
Our Reading Family is a highly accessible program that any community can adopt and run at a low operational cost. Attend a one-time training to learn best practices for leading a successful cohort, receive all of the activities and planning materials, and your group will be ready to launch Our Reading Family in your community!

Special note during COVID-19: We're still offering programming - but keeping our families and volunteers safe! Our Reading Family Virtual is a modified version of the classic program. Small cohorts meet over Zoom for 90 minutes each Saturday for four weeks.
