Mission Statement

The mission of The Literacy Lab is to provide high-quality, targeted reading remediation to low-income students in order to increase their literacy skills, leading to increased academic success and greater opportunities in life.

Description

According to the 2009 National Assessment of Academic Progress, 68% of 8th graders across the country were reading below grade-level proficiency. In Washington, DC, this number rises to 86% below proficiency. Without fundamental reading skills, these 86 out of every 100 DC 8th graders face severely limited opportunities. This is both a crisis and an injustice. The Literacy Lab is a non-profit organization serving the Washington, DC and Baltimore metropolitan areas. Our experience has shown that students will make progress when they are given quality instruction in a consistent and structured manner. By providing individualized reading instruction which targets fundamental skills, The Literacy Lab's trained tutors lead students to higher reading levels and increased confidence.
