The Reading Team

Based in Harlem, the Reading Team is dedicated to enabling young children who are at high risk of reading failure to become strong and enthusiastic readers, writers, listeners, and speakers, and to develop the skills, habits, and behaviors that will support their success in school and in life. They accomplish this through a series of uniquely successful programs that immerse young children who are at high risk of reading failure in a rich and engaging learning environment before a lack of success in school dampens their natural enthusiasm for learning.

Their CCS grant is used to fund the expansion of preschool & after-school programs at PS 36. These activities help children expand their understanding of the world around them and develop habits of heart and mind that will support their continued success in school and in life.
