EW!USA makes a difference in the lives of countless through a very simple belief of one child, one book, and one reader. This simple connection drives fantastic results. The excitement that is generated for learning in children when an adult takes the time to read is unmatched. Nobody does it better than EW!USA

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

... the eyes of children and the hearts of the readers. Not only does EW!USA greatly improve the options of children it effectively connects adults to a greater sense of self when they are able to support young people.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the impact that it has had on the lives of so many children.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

caring, kind and innovative.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

help 10 million children read.

I have been an EW! reading mentor in Stamford CT for three years now, and it is a powerful experience. There is nothing more exciting than reading with a young elementary school student and discussing the characters and ideas in the books we share. The young boys I have worked with are always excited on "Power Lunch" days, because they come to associate reading with the focused attention of a caring adult. EW research shows that this positive experience carries over into other academic achievement for the students, as well as fostering a better attitude toward reading and learning overall. This is a valuable, valuable program.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Stamford CT as a reading volunteer with Pitney Bowes, and nationally as a board member of EW! USA.
