Navigate the Path from Intention to Impact

We have an important calling – elevating literacy for future generations. And your goals are worthy of a powerful plan. That’s why at Lectio, we mobilize leaders to strengthen and accelerate their strategic route from inspiration to outcome.

Our Work

We are called to the important role of inspiring, connecting, and strategizing with literacy leaders at all stages of their impact work, to drive progress. More than a decade of work with hundreds of partners, and expertise in the science of improvement and the science of literacy, has given us a clear window into what’s needed, and a toolkit to navigate the path from intention to impact.

Did you know

By the end of third grade, only about 35% of U.S. children are reading at grade level.

Despite great promise and tireless efforts, most literacy programs, initiatives, and services produce only negligible effects.

We have seen changes at every level in Arizona. We have agencies that are re-designing their portfolios of programs and services to be more intentional and aligned to the outcomes they want. We have local team members strengthening their programming in a specific neighborhood or target population. We have funders working hand-in-hand with their grantees to help support alignment to outcomes using Lectio’s approach.

Working closely with Lectio, we revised our model, refined all of our training materials, and invested time supporting programmatic change. We have identified measures that will allow us to directly measure our impact. We have had multiple-level stakeholder conversations to educate them about our evolving model and to engage their support of our local programs. We have much greater confidence in our ability to scale our model at an accelerated pace.

Our partnership with Lectio led us to strategically fund $4M+ in behavior changing programs and to create a leadership plan for our campaign.
