Sight Word Busters is a 501(c)3 tax-exempt nonprofit organization. Our mission is to ensure primary students master high-frequency words using well-trained community volunteers working one-on-one with students in their own classroom, employing consistent practices, self-paced goals, and positive reinforcement. We believe that when children have greater success in early literacy they perform better academically, emotionally, and socially throughout their academic experiences. Sight Word Busters was established in 2011. Our services began at just 1 school, in 1 classroom, with 4 volunteers, serving 25 students. Now, we operate in 24 schools, in over 130 classrooms, utilizing over 350 volunteers, serving over 2,300 students. We currently offer services in Placer County and Sacramento County.
