I am hoping to raise funds for a program in the Flint Community Schools to introduce fifth grade students to the joys of literacy. I will be meeting with these students every other week and we will be actively reading, writing, and taking educational field trips. A pre test and post test will be administered to show the growth in literacy for the students. It is my hope that these students will grow to enjoy reading and continue to improve their reading skills. I have found that my love for literacy has helped me tremendously in my collegiate career and I would like to share this in the hopes that other students will share this same love for literacy.
