Join us as we take Steps for Literacy!

Literacy isn’t a problem, illiteracy is!  Join us as we combat childhood illiteracy, one of the largest problems in the Greater Austin area, by taking Steps for Literacy!  Eighty eight percent of students who failed to earn a high school diploma were struggling readers in third grade. Education Connection is raising up volunteers to help combat this alarming statistic. In 2009, the church community asked city leaders what we could do to make a lasting impact in our city. The answer was simple: to support children’s literacy and decrease school dropout rates. Hence, Education Connection was created. Currently, more than 1,150 volunteers are currently serving at least 2,300 children in 12 school districts (104 schools) across Central Texas, by sitting with elementary children each week for 30 minutes to read one-on-one. With the program growing rapidly and with more children in need of extra support, there’s a place for you to make a difference in a child’s education and life. With over 250 elementary schools located in the Greater Austin area, the need to reach every child is tremendous. As a faith-based community, we have an opportunity to partner a church with each school, reading to children one-on-one, while supporting educators as they help children to learn and grow. So far, 160+ churches, community organizations, and school partnerships have started in the Greater Austin area with thousands of Literacy Partners impacting the lives of children.
