REACH OUT AND READ

 

Reach Out and Read recognizes pediatric checkups as a opportunity to encourage parents to read aloud to their children. Doctors and nurses talk to parents of infants and toddlers about the importance of reading aloud to their children. Medical providers also give free children’s books to families at each well-baby visit. Learn more...

FAMILIES FOR LITERACY

 

The Families for Literacy (FFL) program is for learners who have a preschool aged child. This program is built upon the premise that the parent is a child's first and foremost teacher. Learn more...

JAIL LITERACY PILOT PROGRAM

 

In a partnership with the Sheriff’s Department, Jail literacy is a pilot program that is an effort to decrease recidivism (the rate of people that relapse into criminal behavior after being released and re-entering jail) and have people successfully re-enter society.

 

The biggest challenge can bring the largest reward.  Volunteers here will work with staff from the Sheriff’s Department.  We are starting at the Claybank Facility which is a minimum security jail. Volunteers meet with their students in a clean, monitored and safe space. These men and women are just like any of our other learners. They are working towards gaining skills that will aid them in becoming productive members of society.

"I hated school. It's embarrassing when your peer would correct your spelling paper and you had practically nothing...The literacy program has really helped me by encouraging me. I never got that when I was a kid."
