Keep Kids on Track
When kids hit reading and math milestones, we know they are on track for college. We are providing tutors and small groups to make sure all kids receive the help they need to stay on track.
You can volunteer to help kids read. By becoming a volunteer reading tutor, you’ll have the opportunity to assist in the classroom 2 days per week for 2-3 hours per day, making an impact on a child, a classroom, and a school.
Research shows that reading at grade level by the end of third grade helps students shift from learning to read to reading to learn, and to master the more complex subjects they will learn in fourth grade.
The United Way Summer Education Program Convening Group is a network of summer education providers and housing complexes working together to provide enriching educational activities for children in the Sacramento area. As part of the larger Campaign for Grade Level Reading and the new Square One Project, the members of the Summer Education Program Convening Group work to prevent the summer slide so that kids are ready to stay to start school the next year and can stay on track to graduate.
