You can empower the next generation to end the cycle of poverty.
According to ProLiteracy “more than 36 million adults in the United States cannot read, write, or do basic math above a third-grade level. Children whose parents have low literacy levels have a 72% chance of being at the lowest reading levels themselves. These children are more likely to get poor grades, display behavioral problems, have high absentee rates, repeat school years, or drop out.” Yet, reading is crucial for everyday activities such as: grocery shopping, taking medication, completing tasks at work, or driving somewhere new.
In order to give children the best chance for their future, we need to work with them before they graduate the 3rd grade. In order to give them the best chance for success, we need to empower them for a lifetime. At Kids Soar, we have the honor to work with an average of 40 children each year.
