How does this organization make a difference?

Overview

Self-reported by organization

Research proves that the single most important activity required for building eventual success in reading is reading aloud to children. Power Lunch works to alleviate the number of students who are at-risk for failure in reading by pairing them with caring mentors for one-on-one reading sessions that take place at lunchtime for the entire school year. Evaluations show that Power Lunch has
proven results in developing reading skills, improving academic performance and test scores and building the self-esteem of student participants.

Programs

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Program 1

Power Lunch reading and mentoring program pairs caring mentors with students in Title I public elementary schools for weekly one-on-one read aloud sessions that take place at lunchtime. These sessions have proven results in improving the reading skills and enhancing the self-esteem of student participants. The program targets those students in grades 2-5 reading at the lowest levels and at-risk for academic failure. StoryTime program reaches young students in grades 1-3 with a performing arts program designed to challenge imaginative thought, create intrigue and offer a visual connection to inspire the reading for pleasure activity.
