Power Lunch is Everybody Wins DC’s signature mentoring and child literacy program. Reading Mentors and elementary school students meet an hour each week for one-on-one shared reading experiences. The program runs in 12 public elementary schools in the Washington DC metro area.

Everybody Wins DC provides books for the Power Lunch students to read with their mentors, and, once a month, students choose a book to take home to add to their personal library.

Onsite School Coordinators supervise the reading and offer any needed support.
