Mission Goals

Read for yourself. Read for your school. Or read to support Foothills Animal Shelter.

Launch your Mission to Read this summer by shooting for these recommended personal reading goals:

  • Babies & Toddlers (ages 0 -3): Complete 8 hours of pre-reader activities (read, write, talk, play, and sing).
  • Kids (ages 4 – 11): Read for 8 hours.
  • Teens (ages 12 -18): Read for 16 hours.
  • Adults (ages 19+): Read 16 hours.

Kids and teens have an additional Mission to Read. We’re challenging all Jefferson County Public School students to read for their schools. Learn more.
