About Connecticut’s program

Read to a Child in Connecticut’s Lunchtime Reading Program began in Hartford in 1998. Supported by nearly 200 corporate and community volunteers, the Program today serves over 140 kindergarten through grade four at-risk children in Hartford, New Britain, and New Haven public schools. Keenly aware of the ongoing, critical need to build literacy skills and a love of reading and books in these young students, Read to a Child in Connecticut looks forward to introducing Lunchtime Reading to more students in more schools. Please join us in this important initiative as a volunteer reader, corporate partner, or individual donor by contacting Gina Broadbent at gina.broadbent@readtoachild.org or 860-838-3916.
