Education

We all have a stake in making sure that today’s children grow up to be productive citizens who give back to the community. 

We all win when children:

  • Enter school ready to succeed;
  • Read proficiently by fourth grade;
  • Have support transitioning into and out of middle school;
  • Have support to graduate on time; and
  • Are given the skills needed to be successful in college, career, and our community.

Our Work in Education

  • We manage the Let's Read program designed to help young children develop healthy reading habits. CLICK HERE for more information.
