Project 1,000: Partnering with United Way of Central Carolinas

Project 1,000

Project 1,000

The Center for Adolescent Literacies at UNC Charlotte has partnered with the United Way of Central Carolinas to provide training to tutors, mentors, and readers in the Project 1,000 initiative. Recognizing that students spend just 20% of their time in the classroom and 80% outside the classroom, the United Way understands the role that afterschool and out-of-school efforts play in children’s academic success. Visit the Project 1,000 website for more information about how to get involved.

If you have attended one of the RWS tutor trainings like the one we conducted on Feb. 26, 2013, we’d like to hear about how things are going. If you are tutoring, mentoring or reading with children in our community, let us know. We’d love to hear about your questions and need for additional training and support. Post comments to this blog–your question is also someone else’s question.

We like to hit the road in our travel trailer with the dogs and when at home party with the cats.
