The Northeast Georgia History Center is raising funds to develop a free, one-on-one tutoring program for low-income students in Hall County 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 are asking you to help us help our community’s poorest children through the power of reading. More than the ability to discern words, reading empowers children with the critical thinking skills, confidence, and personal growth necessary to succeed. The Northeast Georgia History Center has the space, the skill set, and the initiative already in place. All we lack are the funds. Through your collective giving, you can transform the lives of hundreds of children.
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.
