Our Mission

Everybody Wins DC helps children thrive by building connections through reading.

The idea behind our mission is simple and straightforward: by giving a child the opportunity to share a joyful reading experience with someone who cares, we can change that child’s life for the better.

But it isn’t just the children who benefit. When we all connect over books, everybody’s lives get better – everybody wins!

Who We Serve

About Our Programs

For the foreseeable future, all EWDC programming will be virtual. We are adjusting our traditional programs – Power Lunch, StoryTime, and The Book Project – to accommodate for this shift, and adding new programs to provide more opportunities for students and volunteers to connect for Shared Reading!
