Storyville is the Equity Foundation’s new literacy initiative, which harnesses the talent of performers to encourage children to read. Storyville targets schools with socio-economic disadvantage or where for a majority of students, English is a second language. Storyville is modelled on the hugely successful SAG-AFTRA Foundation BookPALS program in the U.S, where volunteer actors read to over 100, 000 children in schools, hospitals, libraries and social service agencies each month.

Who better to bring the magic of stories to life than performers? The Equity Foundation is developing a program that harnesses the talent of performers to encourage children to read. Research shows that one of the best predictors of children’s success in learning to read is being read to aloud.
