VOOKS Collaboration | United Way of Metropolitan Dallas



Education opens doors, broadens horizons and sets kids up for success. And reading is the gateway to education, starting from an early age. That’s why United Way has partnered with Atmos Energy and Vooks, the leading streaming service for children’s books, to inspire thousands of North Texas children with the love of reading.

Building a generation of readers
Kids who enter school ready to learn are more likely to read proficiently by 3rd grade. And students that read on grade level by third grade are 5x more likely to graduate ready for success in college or career. By improving education today, we can impact our community’s income and health for years to come.

Learning to Adapt
Teaching and learning look a little different this year. As we adapt to learning outside the classroom, sharing Vooks is a great way for parents to stay involved and improve reading for children. With Vooks, kids have access to reading and learning, wherever they are.
