We are excited to share that a grant from the Duke Energy Foundation has recognized how Ready Ready encourages literacy for Guilford County’s youngest children. We are one of 51 organizations that received grants totaling $1 million to address pandemic learning loss in North Carolina.

“Ready for School, Ready for Life (Ready Ready) thanks Duke Energy Foundation for its generous support of our early literacy programs, designed to meet the greatest educational needs of young children during the pandemic,” said CEO Charrise Hart. “This funding will allow us to prepare Guilford County toddlers and preschoolers for kindergarten through the implementation of pre-literacy programming and active reading strategy training sessions.”
