Do you run a camp or provide regular programming for elementary students over the summer?

Literacy Mid-South is looking to partner with community organizations who work with elementary students over the summer. 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.

Some of those resources include:

  • Curriculum

  • Staff Training

  • Free giveaway books for every participating student

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

  • And much more!

If you are a summer program provider and want support with preventing summer slide, please consider filling out Literacy Mid-South’s interest form below.

We were the people who were not in the papers. 

We lived in the blank white spaces at the edges of print. It gave us more freedom. 

We lived in the gaps between the stories.
