Through our literacy support programs, we ignite the students’ love of learning. We cultivate a curiosity and an awareness of the world around them. Through the arts, children improve their understanding of words and concepts critical for literacy — building vocabulary and expanding comprehension. These experiences are specifically designed to enrich literacy work and encourage a love of learning for life.

Through partnerships with a variety of organizations and individuals, we are able to provide students with additional opportunities that equip them with a multitude of tools for their future success. The goal of these events is to increase vocabulary by exposing students to new experiences and ideas, as well as to provide students with resources. Events fall into one of three categories:
- Caring for Kids provides students with necessary items, such as school supplies and winter coats, through donations by community partners.
- Mentoring Matters events allow students to interact with people from all walks of life, including inspirational and local leaders, who introduce the students to new ideas and perspectives.
- Field Trips offer students an expanded awareness of the world around them.
