Traveling Stories is a nonprofit that helps underprivileged kids, or kids who are reluctant readers to fall in love with reading by the 4th grade! With strong literacy skills we empower kids to outsmart poverty in their own community. We do this through story tents which is where children can be read to, or read to volunteers. With each book they read they get a book buck which can be exchanged for real prizes! This helps kids not only improve their reading skills but also basic financial literacy skills as well!
The story tents are placed in locations that families would already be like farmer’s markets and currently we have locations in San Diego,CA : El Cajon, Imperial Beach, City Heights, North Park and in Turlock, CA. Outside of California we have story tents in Stuttgart, AR and Nashville, Tn and even Toronto, Canada!
