Community Stakeholders

Learn about our partnering organizations

Cedar Valley Readers is a collaborative initiative led by a group of community stakeholders from many local organizations. Following the collective impact model, we gather on a regular basis to share information, exchange ideas, and work together to promote literacy initiatives happening in and around the Cedar Valley. Below is a list of stakeholders that came together in 2014 to begin Cedar Valley Readers, and who continue to play an active role in helping guide and promote our activities.
