READING WRITING ITS EXCITING

Our Mission

Support our mission by creating your own fundraiser.

Our mission is to is to significantly help at-risk 2nd graders in writing and reading in Los Angeles.

And here are the main reasons for the program:

• Research has shown that if kids aren’t writing and reading at grade level by the 3rd grade, they almost never catch up. And then it’s been found that as many as 80% of those kids eventually drop out of high school, are unemployed, join gangs or are in prison.

• The above numbers are so accurate that several states base their future prison construction plans on them. Low literacy is the socio-economic factor prison inmates have most in common.

So our program’s aim is to reach these children before they become a part of these statistics. In doing so, we’ll be giving them a chance at a much better future.

How do we help? We work directly with the schools. Each student in our program is identified by their teachers as someone who needs help with writing and reading. Then, we provide one-to-one weekly mentoring, during the whole school year, to help them write stories, using their own imaginations. As they’re having fun using their imaginations, they learn how to write good sentences, and to use specific details, proper grammar, proper spelling and punctuation.

To work with as many kids as possible, we need to fundraise. So, anything you contribute will be greatly appreciated!
