Reading Excellence and Discovery Foundation, Inc. (abbreviated READ) is a non-profit charitable organization in the United States, founded in 1999[1] by Al Sikes and Alain Lebec.[2] The program was first conducted at two parochial schools in 2000.[1] The READ foundation was created in light of the high proportion of children in New York City from low-income households who, at that time, read below grade level. READ benefits kindergarten and first-grade students at risk of reading below grade level. The average session is forty-five minutes of phonics and fluency, conducted by middle through high-school students.[3]
