Founded in 1997, Everybody Wins! Atlanta is a local affiliate of a national non-profit organization that pairs elementary school students at risk for academic failure with caring mentors who spend one-on-one time reading with them for one hour each week for an entire school year. The program currently serves low-income public elementary school students in the Cobb, Fulton, DeKalb, Gwinnett and Atlanta public school systems, and is funded through grants and corporate and private donations. The organization also offers StoryTime, which brings professional performers, authors and storytellers into schools to use their creative talents to expose children to the world of literacy through action of the written word and audience participation.
