Executive Summary

Energy Express is a research based summer reading and nutrition program for children in West Virginia. AmeriCorps members engaged as mentors serve with children. They eat breakfast and lunch served family-style, and engage in reading-related activities that make reading meaningful. AmeriCorps members serving as community coordinators train and supervise volunteers who support children's learning. Evaluation results show the typical summer slide is halted and children's reading scores increase.
