November & social capital

Project Spotlight: ReadUP

ReadUP connects volunteers with local schools where they read with students for 30 minutes every week, helping kids get on track - and stay on track - with grade-level literacy. We know that children who read at or above grade-level are more likely to succeed in school and in life.
ReadUP is taking place in 29 schools across Central Indiana for the 2021-2022 school year. If you would like to be a part of the impact that is being made in the lives of students through the ReadUP program, please contact Tony Hart at tony.hart@uwci.org for more information on how you can join the ReadUP family.
