Change it Up! for reading

72DPI_Thao_Changitup_MarchThao knew exactly whom she wanted to pick for her turn at the Change It Up! program. Each month an employee chooses a worthy organization for which to fundraise and collect spare change. Thao chose Reading Partners. This organization is leading a movement to close the reading achievement gap.

Reading Partners is a nonprofit literacy organization that recruits and trains community volunteers to provide one-on-one reading tutoring to students in under-resourced schools across the country. The highly effective program has helped thousands of children master the fundamental reading skills they need to succeed in school and beyond.

Not only that, but they show results! In the 2012-13, school year: 88% of participating students accelerated their rate of learning, and 72% finished the year closer to their target grade level, bringing them closer to their on-grade-level peers.

Small change, big impact!

Change it Up! after our H.E.A.R.T.S.

Changeitup_Maria

Maria is going after our hearts this month! For our Change It Up! program, an employee chooses a worthy organization to fundraise for during each month. Maria chose to collect spare change for H.E.A.R.T.S. This elementary after-school program stands for Helping Elementary Achievers Reach the Stars.

H.E.A.R.T.S. Promises to:

  • Provide a safe and positive learning atmosphere for students after regular school hours
  • Provide academic support
  • Provide personal enrichment and development opportunities for the special needs of Riverside youth
  • Provide positive mentoring
  • Provide a creative outlet for youth

The number of students who can be accepted into the after-school program at each site is limited and varies according to the amount of funding the school receives. Every dollar can make a difference!
