Save to Favorites

ORGANIZATION: American Youth Literacy Foundation

3 reading is forever

Have you ever wanted to do something AMAZING to change the world but didn't know where to start? Here is an opportunity to help underprivileged children, to help under-served children, to help ALL children. The American Youth Literacy Foundation (dba YouthLit) is working to reverse the Literacy Crisis and, by extension, the Education Crisis in America by delivering free tutoring to children after school. Our organization is an established, fourteen year old 501 c 3 charitable non-profit based in Philadelphia, (Phoenixville) PA.

If you can imagine how the face of a child brightens the moment they first truly understand what it means to read, this is the moment and feeling that we want to bring to millions of children nationwide who have been left behind.

When you sign up we'll send you a multi-page letter with a complete description of our program. We'll train you HOW to teach reading to kids and give you the the curriculum and all the tools you need to be successful. All of this is completely FREE to you. We will teach you a lifelong skill and you can make a real difference for real children in your community.

Please click to get started. We look forward to hearing from you : )

Become a reading tutor and change a life!

Thank you for your interest! We look forward to working with you.

Mission Statement

The Vision of FUNetix is: UNIVERSAL LITERACY The Mission of FUNetix is: Deliver a smartphone app that will make that vision happen.

Universal literacy is within reach because FUNetix is able to teach reading in a way that it has never been taught before, and with a speed that has never been conceived of before. FUNetix is here, and if your child is ready, we're ready. You can start learning how to read in 12 hours, today!

Description

FUNetix is a 19-years-new, patented, science-based, and incredibly simplified way of teaching reading to children that's finally available to parents and children anywhere in the United States and anywhere in the world via the FUNetix 12 Hour Reading App available in the App Store, Google Play store and Amazon App store. FUNetix is 19-years-new, but in some ways, it is more than 2,000 years old. The patented FUNetix Reading Decoding System is rooted in an ancient methodology that shows readers how to see the hidden sounds in every word. FUNetix earned its patent by borrowing the time-tested method called "diacritics" (which was developed more than 2,000 years ago by the Greeks, and adopted more than 1,000 years ago by the Hebrew and Arabic languages, to teach ALL children how to read those languages), and uniquely, completely and systematically applying it to English in a child-friendly and simple way. FUNetix teaches children how to "map" or "marry" all 44 sounds of the English language to the letters and letter combinations that make up English words. This mapping (made easy by diacritics) takes all of the guesswork out of "sounding out" words.
