The Read Aloud America program was founded in 1995 by Jed Gaines. In 1997, in conjunction with educators and writers, the Read Aloud Program was created. Since that time many Hawaii schools have joined the program.

 Please look at the listing to determine whether the schools that your club is responsible for are on the list. If they're not, your club may wish to contact Mr. Gaines and the school principal and determine whether having a RAP program at those schools would be appropriate.
