What is Springboard?
Our mission is to close the literacy gap by coaching teachers, training family members, and cultivating reading habits so that our scholars have the requisite skills to access life opportunities.
Who do you partner with?
We partner with school communities that serve low-income students.
How do I bring Springboard to my school?
Teachers: What can I do if Springboard isn’t at my school?
Start by making an individualized reading plan for all of your students.
What can I do as a family member at home?
We strongly believe in increasing quality reading time between a child and their family. We encourage family members to read with their child often and to ask questions before, during, and after reading to ensure comprehension.
What differentiates the Springboard approach?
Springboard relies on the untapped power of a parent’s love for their child. Parents are situated to be their child’s greatest advocate by partnering with their teacher.
What cities do you work in?
We’re currently in San Francisco, San Jose, Salinas, Stockton, Fresno, and Oakland, CA; Norwalk and Stamford, CT; Washington, D.C.; Wilmington, DE; Baltimore, MD; New York City, NY; Philadelphia, PA.
