Real Men Read & Barbershop Book Corners

REAL MEN READ brings men into the classroom to read to and mentor children in Kindergarten- 6th Grade and continues the push for greater reading comprehension in the barber chair with BARBERSHOP BOOK CORNERS.

REAL MEN READ encourages kids to read and inspires them toward a lifelong love of reading. The program shows that REAL MEN do read and value education. The goal of the program is to improve literacy skills, reading confidence and testing performance.

The Global Renaissance REAL MEN READ Initiative addresses literacy as a conduit to educate, empower and engage the community at large in narrowing the academic achievement gap.

If you would like to volunteer as a reader please email J Glenn at

Choose A Book And Read To Your Barber, He’ll Take A Little Money Off The Top. It’s not just enough to read the book out loud. Kids are quizzed by their barber to make sure they understand what they read as part of the barbershop’s literacy program at Maximum performance in Conway Arkansas.
