For 18 years, Everybody Wins! Atlanta’s Power Lunch literacy program has been delighting the 15,000+ Metro Atlanta students, volunteers, teachers, school administrators and parents impacted by this shared reading experience.
Here’s how it works:
- Volunteers are paired with a first through fifth grade student identified by his or her teacher as reading below his or her grade level.
- Pairs meet each week during the student’s lunchtime for the entire school year, and the volunteer reads to the student for 30 minutes.
It is a simple, but proven concept. Studies show that reading aloud to a child is the best way to improve literacy. Test scores and teacher feedback tell us this program works extremely well, and students tell is they can’t wait for Power Lunch each week. Power Lunch really is POWERful!!
