Our VisionAn Oregon where every child can read and is empowered to succeed. Our MissionWe engage community volunteers to read one-on-one with PreK-3rd grade children who need literacy support. Participating children also receive new books each month - up to 14 each year - to keep and read with their families.
Impact Summary from the Nonprofit Research shows that: Thousands of K-12 students throughout Oregon are reading below benchmark levels. Children need to learn to read by 3rd grade so they can read to learn. Those who donít learn to read by 3rd grade are more likely to struggle with reading as adults, drop out of school, and be less successfully employed. But hereís the difference SMART makes:A study by the (http://getsmartoregon.org/ourmission/documents/ERIStudy.pdf) reveals that 5th graders who participated in SMART are 60 percent more likely to reach state reading benchmarks than are similar students who did not participate. SMART students develop reading accuracy, fluency, and comprehension significantly faster and maintain these gains even after completing the program. In our most recent year-end surveys administered to SMART educators, parents and volunteers, 70 percent of teachers and principals indicated that SMART had a significant impact on literacy outcomes at their schools. Eighty-five percent of teachers and principals indicated that their students directly benefitted from SMART. Among parents surveyed, 92 percent thought the SMART program helped their child become a better reader. More than half of parents reported that, because of SMART, their children want to read with family more often, enjoy reading more, talk about books more often, and demonstrate improved reading skills and increased confidence.
