First graders, identified as students at-risk for falling behind in school, participate in our Literacy For Kids 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 students with a total of 1,267 new books as part of the Reading Express program, a school summer reading program, and the Build a Child’s Library program where every child in the school received their own new book.

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