THE STORY:

Every kid wants to be a reading super star!  But for some kids, this is a really tough goal to achieve.  The goal of my fundraiser is to help Super Stars Literacy acquire the necessary books and digital reading tools to help at-risk children succeed in life.  As a volunteer tutor for Super Stars Literacy, I have seen first hand the powerful effect literacy has on a young persons life.  Please support my fundraiser and tommorrow's super stars!

Why does this Matter?

Children from poor families enter school having been exposed, on average, to over 30 million fewer words than their more affluent peers.

There is an almost 90% chance that a child who is a poor reader at the end of grade 1 will be a poor reader in grade 4.

Children not reading at grade level by the end of the third grade are at serious risk of never graduating from high school.


Super Stars Literacy is a literacy program that was started in 2002 by the Junior League of Oakland-East Bay, Inc. (JLOEB), an organization of women committed to promoting volunteerism and improving communities through the effective action and leadership of trained volunteers. Throughout its more than 75 year history, JLOEB has focused its efforts on improving conditions for vulnerable children throughout Oakland and the East Bay Area by collaborating with other community based organizations and social service agencies to develop sustainable strategies that address unmet community needs, providing resources to community organizations, and dedicating volunteers to support project development, implementation and outreach efforts.

Our Focus:  Super Stars Literacy works with children in Kindergarten through second grades who exhibit significant delays in reading acquisitioin or reading skills development and thus are at serious risk of school failure.  In addition to building literacy skills, our program seeks to build cognitive competency and emotional resiliency in our students as protective factors against anti-social and violent behavior.

Our Mission: We give every child the foundation for lifelong learning and achievement.

Our Vision:To be the early literacy education partner-of-choice providing children most in need with rigorous, problem solving programming that builds essential skills and develops their potential to participate fully in society.
