THE STORY:

Hello!

You may have been brought here because you know me in person and are a family member or friend or you may have been brought here because you know me online.

Let me tell you a little bit about the organization I work for, Beyond Basics. Beyond Basics is a literacy non-profit that gets children, in Detroit, reading at grade level.

The saddest thing to me is that there are so many children that are graduating reading at a fourth grade level. I bet you can't even remember what reading at a fourth grade level was like! We shouldn't be standing by watching this happen, and Beyond Basics isn't.

If a child can't read they may drop out due to lower grades and without a High School Diploma their options shrink. If a child can't read, but still graduates High School with a Diploma their options still shrink. Imagine trying to fill out applications or questionaires for a job without being able to read. 

Be the change. Change the LIFE (Literacy Is For Everyone) of a child.
