READ TO SUCCEED! is a children's literacy program that strengthens children's reading and writing abilities by providing free tutorial services. The purpose of the READ TO SUCCEED! program is to provide children, grades K-8, with two hours of free tutorial services a week. The goal of the tutoring is to raise students' reading levels as measured by pre- and post-testing, foster a love for reading within the students, promote students' self-esteem and equip students with specific academic skills and strategies necessary to read.
