Write to Read
Write to Read (WTR) is a literacy program that raises teens’ reading comprehension levels up 6 grades. On average, teens enter the program with a 5th-grade reading level and by the end of the program, they reach an 11th-grade reading level. Students depart the program scoring at a level that prepares them to tackle high-school level reading and gives them an opportunity to further pursue education and employment goals.
