National Wraparound Community Literacy Project

Commitment by

Student Coalition for Action in Literacy Education

In 2012, the Student Coalition for Action in Literacy Education (SCALE) committed to increasing the literacy rates of 100 youth in the Chapel Hill, NC area by piloting the Wraparound Community Literacy Project. SCALE will train college student leaders, and together they will implement a range of literacy initiatives in Chapel Hill, NC during the 2012-2013 academic year. Their projects will include a college student-K-12 student literacy mentorship program and at least three family literacy classes for parents and children. To maximize impact and community integration, SCALE staff and student leaders will partner with at least five local nonprofit organizations that serve children and families but do not currently provide literacy resources.
