Executive Summary

500 AmeriCorps Members will leverage an additional 3,000 volunteers to provide research based literacy activities that make reading meaningful for 1st through 6th grade children living in low-income, rural West Virginia communities. Each year during the proposed 3 year project period, 125,000 free meals will be served and 20,000 free, take-home books will be provided to more than 3000 children. Annual evaluation demonstrates that those who complete the program will gain an average of 2-4 months in broad reading skill. The CNCS investment of $1,198,587 will be matched with $1,198,588.
