United Through Reading connects military families who are separated —for deployment
or military assignment—by providing the bonding experience of shared story time. United Through Reading was founded in 1989 by the wife of a Naval flight surgeon who was deployed to Vietnam, leaving his infant daughter at home. When the surgeon returned home, his little girl didn’t know him, and he had to re-enter her life as a stranger. Our founder was a reading specialist and knew firsthand the importance of exposing children to literature from birth. Thus, a powerful concept emerged. Now, 30 years later, UTR still stands strong — and proven deployment after deployment. More than two million military mothers, fathers, aunts, uncles, older siblings, and children have sustained bonds and fostered literacy by sharing stories across even the greatest distances.
United Through Reading (UTR) is seeking a strategic, visionary, and forward-thinking leader to be its next Chief Executive Officer (CEO). This is a unique opportunity to be at the helm of a virtual organization with a 30-year history of uniting military families through shared reading, increasing literacy, and educational outcomes for children. UTR strengthens the family unit by providing continuity and reliability of family engagement while a service member is away, helping reduce stress on the family while enhancing a child’s fundamental skill of reading.
