At the Cedar Rapids Farmers' Market on August 19, our Young Leaders Society (YLS) launched a new initiative called One Leader One Reader.
One Leader One Reader will support early childhood literacy. Nate Klein, YLS chair, discusses the importance of this issue in the vlog below:
Learning begins long before the first day of school. So how can you help us change our community?
Become a volunteer to help prepare local kids for school! Search for opportunities at uweci.org/volunteernow.
Donations designated to One Leader One Reader will benefit local children:
- $250 = One year of RED Ahead for one child
- $500 = 10 family support home visits
- $750 = 12 weeks of financial assistance for one child’s preschool care
- $1,000 = 135 hours of one-on-one tutoring for an elementary student
