Read to Lead

Why this program is going to work!

"Books were my personal pass to freedom. I learned to read at age three, and soon discovered there was a whole world to conquer that went beyond our farm in Mississippi."

~ Oprah Winfrey

What is Read to Lead?

Free the Captives is excited to launch our new literacy program that will break the cycle of poverty and change generations within teen trafficking victims’ families. Due to an unplanned pregnancy or a lack of resources, you might be worried about your child following in the same footsteps that you found yourself in growing up. How are you going to give them a better life? To create a better life for your children, we can start together by helping them develop a love for reading.

How is reading going to help my child?

How Read to Lead works.

If you choose to participate in this amazing program, you will be provided with books from our reading list. You are encouraged to read to your child every night, and these times will be recorded in a reading log. Every two weeks you will turn your reading log in for the chance to win incentives such as gift certificates to buy diapers and wipes!

Do you have questions?

If you have questions, you can either ask a Free the Captives volunteer or email with your questions.
