Literacy Development Program
The Need For Literacy..
-1 in 4 children in America grow up not learning how to read
-Students who don’t read proficiently by the 3rd grade are 4 times more likely to dropout of school
Summary of Program:
We are so excited to now offer a literacy development program as one of our on-site services available at two Empower Communities (Hartwood at Canal and Quail Ridge). Reading and writing skills are crucial to ensuring communities have access to empowering jobs and mental and physical health services. An emphasis on literacy has also proven to reduce the number of kids that will eventually enter into the criminal legal system.
The Bookworm Bus as Part of our Literacy Development Program will proudly offer a variety of on-site literacy programs including….
-Summer Reading Program
-On Property After School Tutoring
