Join the Learn to Read-a-thon!

Learn to Read Jacksonville is excited to announce the first ever community-wide read-a-thon! Sign up by creating a personal or team page, committing to read a number of books over the holiday season, and allowing people to support your efforts with donations to Learn to Read Jacksonville.

Learn to Read’s mission is to increase literacy awareness and improve adult literacy in Jacksonville through a volunteer-based program. Funds will be used to provide one-on-one tutoring, group instruction and computer-based learning to over 500 adults in our community who are seeking to improve their reading, writing and basic math skills. Our fundraising goal of $50,000 will allow us to serve 83 new students next year. Every donation counts and together we can make a difference.

The reading portion of our Read-a-thon will take place from November 1 to December 29, 2019. Registration and pledging are open now. Visit to register.

You can sign up as an individual reader, or you can create a reading team.  We’re also offering opportunites for you to become a Read-a-thon sponsor.

No time to read? We understand, the holidays are busy! Sponsoring one of our registered readers is another way to participate. Don’t know any readers on the leaderboard? It’s easy to make a general donation as well!
