The Reading Team

The Reading Team provides intensive literacy remediation to over 800 students, pre-K to grade 5, to get them reading at grade level.  Foundation support was instrumental in facilitating the Reading Team’s move to a second site in a Harlem elementary school, allowing the organization to nearly double the number of children it serves.  

Stephen Meringoff serves as Vice Chair of Reading Team’s Board of Directors.

"I like myself when I'm at the Reading Team because I'm smart and a good kid when I'm here."
