There is a literacy crisis in our community.
Sadly, only half of the children in
Winston-Salem/Forsyth County Schools can read proficiently.
of 3rd graders in WS/FCS
are not proficient in reading
of poor readers in 3rd grade will still be poor readers in 9th grade
of children in WS/FCS are not on track for college or career readiness
What We Do
Our vision is a transformed community in which every child learns to read, write, and spell.
We believe that all children can learn to read with proper literacy instruction based in the science of reading. We leverage the power of community volunteers to teach struggling readers in WS/FCS to read, and we provide access to training in the science of reading for teachers and parents.
