Mission Statement

Everybody Wins! DC is a non-profit organization devoted to promoting children's literacy and a love of learning through shared reading experiences with caring individuals. These experiences enhance children's self-esteem, expanding their possibilities for success in school and life, and enable adult volunteers and communities to experience the rewards of enriching young lives.

EW!DC does this by pairing elementary school children with older student reading partners as well as caring adults recruited from Capitol Hill, the federal government, corporations, local businesses, and other organizations.

Program 1

Programs Overview

The literacy and mentoring activities reach more than 6,000 underserved children in 36 low-income public elementary schools and are implemented through four programs:

Power Lunch program -- links eager young minds with caring adults, who give an hour of their time each week to read and talk with children over shared lunch. The mentors promote reading for pleasure, serve as role models, and build children?s self-confidence.

Readers Are Leaders program -- older school students are paired with younger children to read together. EW!DC provides extensive leadership training to the older children, supporting them in their growth as reading mentors and as leaders in their school communities.

Story Time -- storytellers, authors, and performers provide monthly programs to Title I public elementary schools that are not served by Power Lunch or Readers Are Leaders.

Book distributions -- EW!DC distributes children's books several times each year directly to the children as well as to the schools, which often have meager library resources.
