Education is the key to a better, more fulfilling life. The more you know, the more you grow.
I am thrilled to partner with Super Stars Literacy, a California-based literacy and education program created in 2002 by the Junior League of Oakland-East Bay, Inc. (JLOEB), an organization of women committed to promoting volunteerism and improving communities through the effective action and leadership of trained volunteers.
Because a child’s early literacy skills are a strong predictor of their later academic achievement, Super Stars Literacy provides at-risk kindergarten through 2nd grade students with daily, after-school literacy instruction which enables them to reach grade-level reading ability by the end of 2nd grade. SSL currently serves 420 students at nine high-poverty East San Francisco Bay Area elementary schools, and is expanding to serve 2500 students per year by 2015.
