You've got to check out this awesome video. Longtime partner Parkway Corporation generously funded a Philadelphia READS Summer program at Laura Waring, to help children combat the 'summer slide'. The Uncommon Individual Foundation - UIF partnered up with READS to bring a mentorship component to the program that helped ignite Waring students' passion for reading.

New at Laura Waring for the 2017-2018 school ...

New at Laura Waring for the 2017-2018 school year... #PowerPartners! The Philadelphia READS #PowerPartners program kicked off across the city last week, and Waring is THRILLED to have corporate partners sponsoring TWO participating grades. On Thursdays, Waring 2nd graders will spend an hour 1:1 reading with their mentors at the US Court of Appeals. On Tuesdays, Waring 1st graders will read 1:1 for an hour with their mentors at the EPA. This is a wonderful program that not only increases early literacy skills, but also engages students in 1:1 mentoring relationships and provides them with exposure to various professional environments. So grateful to Philadelphia READS for this program, to the EPA and Court of Appeals for making the investment in this partnership, and for FoW member Meghan ODonnell Armani for making it all happen. Together we are building a #CityofReaders ! http://philareads.org/power-partners/

    Power Partners
    Since 1998, the Philadelphia READS Power Partners program has provided a creative blend of literacy enrichment, mentoring, and career education for over 12,000 Philadelphia public school students in grades 1 - 3. Throughout this time, volunteer "power partners" have donated an approximate 450,000 hours, meeting with their students on a weekly basis for one-on-one literacy coaching.
