"Nearly 68 percent of eighth graders in the U.S. read below the proficient level and approximately one quarter are unable to read at even the most basic level, according to the National Assessment of Educational Progress. One of the major reasons students drop out of school is tied to low reading achievement level, as cited by the Alliance for Excellent Education." - Caring Magazine, 2013

In partnership with the American Bible Society, Mission Literacy uses books adapted from bible stories (multiculturally) to teach reading. The program is geared for 1st to 6th graders.
It is a 16-session program, sometimes held in a 16 week course (during the school year), sometimes in an 8-session course (8 sessions in the summertime) is free for anyone to join and taught mostly by a volunteer staff. The winter session runs approximately January to May; Summer session is approx late June through early August.
