At EWDC, our vision is that every child has the support needed to thrive at home, at school, and in their communities. But we know that this isn’t the reality for many children in the DC area, especially those from historically marginalized or underserved communities. That’s why we’ve made it our mission to help kids build a strong foundation for future success - and we do it all through reading.
For almost 30 years, Everybody Wins DC has used books to help children build the literacy and social-emotional skills needed to thrive in the classroom and in life. Through one-on-one mentoring, read-aloud events, and free book distributions, our students become stronger readers, enthusiastic learners, and confident individuals. But that’s not all. Our programs connect volunteers with their communities, provide schools with supplemental support, and promote empathy, understanding, and inclusion. When children read, everybody wins.
