The Northeast Georgia History Center is raising funds to develop a free, one-on-one tutoring program for students who struggle with reading. Qualified tutors will mentor students for one hour each week in literacy through educational computer programs, reading time, and activities for the specific struggles of the student. This program is based on a well-established literacy program supported by Yale University with 15+ years of successful results in increasing literacy among students K-12.

We have reached over $50,000 for the program so far thanks to the generosity of those who attended our 2019 Taste of History fundraiser. In order to develop, grow, and sustain this program, we need further support from the community. Any donation amount will help.
