Most parents do not want to admit it when their child has a learning disability and I am one of those parents. This is why I decided to start a reading program to promote continuous reading in youth. Rising Up With Reading is a reading program that I am starting up for youths in my community. The community that I live in is a rural area with limited reading programs. The library is only opened on Tuesdays -Friday and it closes at 5pm. The youth do not have time to sit and read, research or complete home work at the library. The program will service youths ages 4 and up. The program's motto is "Reading is not an option, it's a necessity". The program will not only focus on promoting reading but also developing future community leaders and entrepreneurs. The donations will go toward purchasing books and finding a facility that the youths can use for after school and weekends where the facility will be opened until 9pm. I am also accepting donated books for all ages. Please help me promote reading, I know it will become a success.
