Our reading program is volunteer ran and ensures young students have an inclusive space to read one of their favorite stories with assistance from our volunteers. We have reading programs at three sites and meet bi-weekly at each one. We target ages K-8 grade with the purpose of having all resident kids meeting benchmark standards. The reading program has teamed up with the wellness committee to provide healthy, nutritious snacks for the students. We aim to create a stronger sense of community and growth with the reading program.
