One of the main focuses of our organization is children’s literacy. We have created several outreach programs to support children’s literacy in the Atlanta area. 

Classroom, Library & Staff Support
We provide volunteers for the classroom, staff, and library at our outreach partner St. Peter Claver Regional Catholic School. Our volunteers are available to work in the classroom or support the staff for a variety of projects in the school. Every other week we plan and implement story hour with a complimentary craft for grades Pre-K and Kindergarten. Volunteers assist with personal tutoring through the English Language Literacy Program. We donate books to the main school library and classroom libraries and support the library by shelving, covering & repairing books and maintaining the overall space.

For our Christmas service project, each student at St. Peter Claver Catholic School, Our Lady of Victory Catholic School and Bright Futures Academy, received a new wrapped book from their friends at CCSA.

Summer Enrichment 
We organize and fund Summer Enrichment Programs at St. Peter Claver and Our Lady of Victory Catholic Schools. The camps help students retain reading and math skills over the summer break. Students participate to boost reading comprehension, critical thinking skills and review vital math concepts. Additionally we provide summer workbooks and novels to Bright Futures Academy. The goal is to sustain or increase levels in reading and math over the course of the summer.

In our "Let's Read!" program, we collect new and used children's books and donate these to many of our clinic and school partners. To date, we have donated 30,000 books to area children since our chapter was founded. To sustain this effort, we work with community partners to hold and promote book drives, as well as purchase new books and bookshelves, which we keep stocked year-round.

 

We have installed community bookcases at the following outreach partners - placing books in the hands and homes of children in need.
