25th Anniversary Celebration

Celebrate 25 years of success and join us in supporting the next generation of readers!

Today, we work to train nearly 300 volunteers to serve day after day tutoring 3,200 young school children who are in need of both a literacy tutor and a caring mentor. Our proven, evidence-based models of literacy success are more effective and focused that ever, and we’re proud to deliver quality tutoring from experienced volunteers who are passionate about serving. As a result, Generations Incorporated has grown over time to become the largest and most effective literacy program in the region.

Greater Boston has a growing need for literacy support, especially for young children from low-income families, and we’re eager to deliver evidence-based support to more students who are still in need. We’re excited to continue the expansion of our programs into 8 new schools over the next 3 years. As part of this growth plan, additional volunteers will be recruited from the local communities of the new schools where they will serve, volunteers will be provided with ARC training and resource materials, and new technology  will be implemented to track student progress for better literacy outcomes. Generations Incorporated is proud to dedicate the start of another 25 years with a commitment to growth, but we can’t do it alone.

Please consider a gift that will help improve the literacy skills and overall quality of life for  young children across Greater Boston. With your help, we can grow to reach more children and engage more older adults with intergenerational literacy programs that are, as Lester Strong, CEO of the national Experience Corps program says, “best in class, best in nation.”
