These Organizations CRUSHED IT in 2019!
Reading fluency and comprehension is arguably the most important skill our children learn during their time in school. It impacts nearly every subject matter directly and is crucial for independent learning that comes outside of school and in our adult lives. Sadly, across the country the school systems have been failing students in need of this vital skill. Many of them continue on, year after year, in school while remaining functionally illiterate! This summer, several organizations have had huge success with struggling students and deserve to be highlighted in hopes that others will follow their lead! Here's one of our favorites!
The Sanctuary on 8th Street
The Sanctuary on 8th Street is attacking this problem head on and winning back the community! Through utilizing the Great Leaps Reading Program and with support from the North American Literacy Initiative, they have had an exciting level of success with their at risk students. The Sanctuary on 8th Street took it upon themselves to organize caring adults to make a real change in the lives of struggling students! They’re now up to over 100 students in their school and summer programs!
