Change the trajectory

of a child’s life

Project Impact, WS/FCS and Read Write Spell are organizing an army of Reading Warrior volunteers – people like you who know that reading is essential for success in life. To become a Reading Warrior visit the Reading Warriors website.

There is a literacy crisis in our community.

Sadly, only half of the children in
Winston-Salem/Forsyth County Schools can read proficiently. 

48%

 of 3rd graders in WS/FCS
are not proficient in reading

74%

 of poor readers in 3rd grade will still be poor readers in 9th grade 

58%

of children in WS/FCS are not on track for college or career readiness

With proper instruction and/or intervention

90-95%

 of children can be fluent readers.
