Fundamental Learning Center (FLC) received more than $2,500 from Coaching For Literacy (CFL) donors, and we put every cent to work by granting scholarships for children to attend our summer literacy program, Reading Fundamentals. With CFL's help, 17 children in need were granted full or partial scholarships to be able to attend the program.
For six weeks, these children came to our facility for one hour a day, four times a week to work on reading, writing and spelling skills through our Alphabetic Phonics program. This curriculum is specifically designed to help children who struggle with these literacy skills. The children who attended our program had fun, gained confidence and improved their reading skills. This program was life-changing for many of the families that benefitted from scholarships.
"It gives me great joy to see my child thriving in areas that she would normally struggle in," said Carrie Haynes, mother of Layla, 9. "Since Layla attended Fundamental Learning Center over the summer, I've been inspired and flooded with emotion watching my child communicate with confidence."
