2016 Summer Program

Read-Aloud held a summer version of the program at two Camp Achieve sites over the summer of 2016, at the Booker T. Anderson and Shields-Reid Community Center camps.

Not only were we able to read over 900 books to children, we gave out over 420 books to families and to the community centers themselves we gave two boxes of books.

The EdFund conducted pre and post evaluation of the children who were read to, and their evaluations of the data appear below:

Read-Aloud helped combat “summer slide”

Instead of the normal 2 months of reading comprehension loss over the summer, the children in the Camp Achieve Read-Aloud Summer Program gained 4 months in grade level reading!
