“Children have enough challenges growing up in society today. If reading is one of the challenges that we can take away from them through the Strong Start program, then it’s one less thing they need to worry about. I think that allows children to reach their maximum potential.”

Timothy Jackson, Social Venture Partners Waterloo Region

“I’m very proud of how Strong Start has grown. It’s grown from a grassroots organization to helping thousands of children learn to read.”

Jim Hallman, Founding Trustee
