Colorado Springs, CO- Children’s Literacy Center is the proud recipient of a $5,000 Community Grant from Kum & Go, the grant will allow CLC to continuing to offer FREE one-to-one tutoring to children reading below grade level in Colorado.
CLC began as a Junior League project in 1991 and has since evolved into a statewide effort to build a life of success for children through a foundation of literacy. CLC provides one-to-one tutoring and curriculum materials for disadvantaged youth and their families. Additionally, we recruit and train nearly 800 volunteers each year. Beginning with one location and sixty-two children in 1993, volunteers continue to tutor using the Peak Reader curriculum at more than 12 community sites in Colorado.
