Literacy First

About the Program

Literacy First will have 82 AmeriCorps members (3 FT, 59 TQT, 10 HT, and 10 RHT) who will provide intensive, evidence-based, early literacy interventions to at least 1,000 kindergarten-2nd grade students in Central Texas under-resourced schools. At the end of the first program year, the AmeriCorps members will be responsible for 65% of students reading grade level in critical foundational reading skills or make accelerated progress to that goal. In addition, the AmeriCorps members will leverage 25 volunteers who will be engaged in supporting with supplies and resources. The AmeriCorps investment will be matched with $1,282,500, $682,500 in public funding and $600,000 in private funding.
