Programs: Rolling Readers Space Coast has been sharing the joy of reading with Brevard County children since 1997. Our mission is to develop in children a desire to be life-long readers. Strong reading skills are the literacy foundation needed to help children achieve success in education. With well over 200 volunteers, we provide weekly read aloud sessions in classrooms (prekindergarten-sixth grade), and tutor/mentor services for struggling readers in second and third grades. During the 2016-17 school year, our mission reached out to 5,269 children, in 25 Brevard County Title 1 elementary schools. In March, each child received a hard cover book, a gift from their Rolling Reader volunteer. For some of the children, this is the first book they can call their very own. Rolling Readers is making a difference. . . one book at a time.
