Become a Read901 Action Partner

Do you run a camp or provide regular programming for elementary students outside of school?

Literacy Mid-South is looking to partner with community organizations who work with elementary students in the out-of-school time space. Children who are not learning over the summer usually come back to school further behind than their peers--we call this summer slide. In order to prevent this, Literacy Mid-South provides literacy resources to camps and programs that operate over the summer and after-school during the school year.

Some of those resources include:

  • Curriculum

  • Staff Training

  • Free giveaway books for every participating student (summer)

  • Monthly meetings to discuss best practices with other summer programs in Memphis

  • And much more!

If you are an out-of-school time program provider and want support with providing literacy programming, please consider filling out Literacy Mid-South’s interest form below.
