We are committed to rising the tide of literacy for all, and believe efficacy is key. Using fresh, effective, and efficient systems, we partner with schools, educators, and families to build literacy skills. The name Boti comes from the word Bottega - the studio of an artist, in which, apprentices, or students learn by participating in the work. Collective comes from the profound belief that in joining together we can build efficacy and empower students to grow in their literacy skills.
