“Literacy is a bridge from misery to hope.”
– Kofi Annan

Our Mission

The mission of “I See Me, Inc.” is to dismantle the “School-to-Prison Pipeline” by increasing the literacy rates in children of color by engaging them in literature that reflects their culture and mirrors their image.

Our Vision

Our vision is to have every student of color reading at or beyond their grade level.
