Literacy Kits

Literacy Kit Project

Learning to read is the most important predictor of a child's future success. Unfortunately, not all children have access to books and miss important milestones.

 

U Can Help!

 

Host a United Way Literacy Kit Project at your workplace or with your group. In the time it takes to have lunch, you can create a literacy kit--a fun, simple solution to engage children and help them learn to read.

  • While making Literacy Kits, volunteers will participate in a unique experience while making a meaningful difference in the community.  The experience can also be easily customized to meet the community goals of your workplace or group and helps build morale.
  • A literacy kit is a children's book and an activity designed to make reading interactive and enjoyable for young children. The target age group is kindergarten to third grade. Literacy kits bring books to life and deepen the reading experience for a child.
  • Research indicates there is a direct impact on school success when a child has access to books at home. (Reading is Fundamental)
