Revitalizing Education in Puerto Rico

Expanding + Strengthening Reading

Breaking the Patterns of Inequity Faced by Children in Puerto Rico

To continue expanding and strengthening reading in grades K-3, through Revitalizing Education we support and subsidize nonprofit organizations and leaders in their respective areas whose programs seek to break the patterns of inequity faced by children and youth in Puerto Rico. In addition, we support and guide various educational organizations through tutoring programs and alternative schools, among other resources, so that they may implement the Essential Practices for Teaching Reading and Writing within their teaching and reading comprehension programs. In doing so, we address the reading achievement gap in the communities they serve and promote interventions that make an impact beyond the island’s public school system.

Because understanding that strengthening the third sector is crucial for the healthy social and economic development of Puerto Rico, we developed useful tools and resources for any nonprofit organization to be sustainable long-term. We also curate valuable content to inform potential support efforts for the island from organizations in and outside Puerto Rico.
