First graders, identified as students at-risk for falling behind in school, participate in our Reading Express program which began in 2004. Each week, Assistance League volunteers meet with the children for one-on-one, half-hour tutoring sessions. In 2018-19, our members devoted a total of 486 hours enhancing the reading skills of these students at two elementary schools in Fairfax County. Also, because of our dedication to children’s literacy, we supplied classrooms and individual students with a total of 1,267 new books as part of the Reading Express program, a special Legacy of Literacy program and school summer reading programs.

What a great way to help our future generation get a good start with these fundamental reading skills!
