From about third grade onward, students read to learn instead of learn to read. Having the ability to read at grade level by third grade is vital to children’s education and future.
At Kids Soar, our focus is on working to end the cycle of poverty by strengthening children and their families through offering literacy and academic education as well as teaching life skills for a successful future.
Teaching a child to read is about more than moving from one reading level to the next, it is about empowering children for a lifetime of success: because every child should be able to read.
Volunteer your time, money, resources, and skills and make a difference today that will last a lifetime.
Starting this past September, Kids Soar opened it’s second site! Trinity United Methodist Church has served as our home for the past 30 years. But, we are thrilled to call the Villages at Lincoln our second home.
We are partnering with the Roanoke Redevelopment and Housing Authority to open up a second location beginning in August 2020. We will begin serving 30 children in K – 3rd grades. Children at this location will have access to a clothes closet as well as an on site library. Dinner will be provided each evening.
In order to make sure that our second site is fully funded so that we can continue to support the children who are attending our program, we have started a mural fundraiser. You can sponsor various elements of our mural, which will have your name on it when the mural is painted on the wall at our Lincoln site. Learn more by clicking the button below.
