Project R.E.A.D.

Read, Enjoy And Develop was adopted by Assistance League of Victor Valley to meet identified needs of local school children.  Project R.E.A.D. funding supports the annual Young Author’s program and Newspapers In Education.


Young Author’s Program – Funding pays for binding selected children’s stories that are submitted to the annual Young Author’s programs that are held at participating Victor Valley elementary schools.  Chapter members are invited to help with judging of children’s stories.

Newspapers In Education – Our chapter is a sponsor of Newspapers In Education featured weekly in the Daily Press. Teachers utilize the local newspaper to motivate children to read, write and apply reasoning skills by using a variety of articles and features aimed at a broad range of reading abilities.
