Ar’Destiny Banks and Kirsten Chavis – Read 2 Succeed Reading Club

Date grant awarded: 10/05/2017

During summer, all kids are at risk of losing some of what they learned during the school year, especially children from poor families. Students who lose reading skills over the summer have a hard time catching up when school starts back up. The Read 2 Succeed Reading Club, located in Los Angeles, California, will inspire kids to read during the school year and protect them from losing their reading skills during summer, winter and spring breaks, with a fun, storytelling and story-creating reading club.
