America Reads - America Counts

Welcome!

America Reads/America Counts is a team of more than 180 Iowa State students committed to improving children's reading and math knowledge. To accomplish our goal, we partner with more than 36 schools and agencies in central Iowa. Iowa State students assist elementary and middle schools in Story, Boone and Polk Counties. Iowa State's America Reads/America Counts program is proud that our students are engaged in the community and support our mission.

Mission

Iowa State University's America Reads/America Counts mission is to increase reading and math skills of local youth and promote college student mentoring and service to the community. This is achieved by providing local schools with trained college student reading and math partners, and enlisting the support of local teachers, administrators, parents, Iowa State faculty and staff, community volunteers and other organizations.
