Partnering for Summer Reading Success!
Community Partnerships led to 81% of students maintaining or improving reading level


Over the summer United Way California Capital Region partnered with the Dairy Council of California to bring nutrition education to programs being facilitated at both Mutual Housing and Community Housing Opportunities Corporation (CHOC)  housing communities. 

The state standard aligned curriculum helped students learn about healthy eating and nutrition while also supporting their ongoing literacy journey and preventing summer slide. We are happy to say that 81% of the students who participated were able to maintain or improve their reading level over the summer!
