Everybody Wins DC believes that when children read or are read to, they can build the skills needed to thrive in the classroom and in life.

That is why since 1995, EWDC has worked with schools and community partners to deliver free reading-based programs that engage children’s minds, encourage their growth, and inspire their futures.

Current programs include one-on-one mentoring, read-aloud activities, and a book distribution effort.

About Our Programs

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