What’s the best way we can help the kids who need us the most?
Team Long Run develops and delivers programs that support a child’s progress by linking learning, early literacy, and active play. We work exclusively in communities with schools and families that are often facing long odds, partnering with some of the most dynamic agencies and philanthropies that share our commitment to helping these kids rewrite their futures.
We're on a mission to have a child's chance of success grow with them.
We work with Head Start Centers as well as Title 1 Schools (where more than half of the students live below the Federal Poverty Level) allowing us to effectively reach families with newborns up to sixth graders. We are the only nonprofit we know of that merges active play with reading and improved learning. Our early childhood programs offer appropriate activities and support materials for the youngest learners (up to age 3). Our Head Start programs are designed for the 4 and 5-year-olds, and our Elementary programs take a child up through the sixth grade. All three phases are linked by design, so a child’s progress is sequential and deliberate.

We believe that all our programs work together to provide solid building blocks supporting future academic success. None of which would be possible without your support. Thank you!
