Tackle Tomorrow is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization founded in 2014 by five-time NFL Super Bowl Champion Charles Haley and Bob Bowie, a Dallas Civic Leader, to provide resources and support to students who struggle to read and write across Dallas, TX.
We believe that if a child is not reading on their appropriate grade level by third grade, their chances of success become greatly diminished. Through participation in our reading program, students receive the motivation and inspiration they need to improve their reading levels. We equip each school with reading coaches, computers, and tablet to teach students essential reading skills, such as reading comprehension, letter knowledge, spelling and word analysis.
Since its founding, the TTP has improved the reading levels of over 1000 students, ranging from grades Pre-K to 5.
Our reading coaches have touched the lives of numerous students in the Dallas Independent School District with our reading program. As a result, students who participate in our reading program are measurably ahead of their peers.
Last school year, 90% of students in our reading program improved their reading scores on their State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness tests. Additionally, 50% of students were reading on their current grade level by the end of our program.
