Organization Information

Mission Statement

The mission of the VMSRAMRH (Vickery Meadow Summer Reading Academy/McShan Reading Homeroom) is to include the students of Vickery Meadow who would not read/write or hear/speak English all summer; provide food, socialization and exercise for those who would not eat well, or even leave the apartment because parents work and are afraid to let them play outside; tutor students so that they are better prepared and inspired to enter school in the Fall after four weeks of the Academy. McShan Reading Homeroom began as an off-shoot of VMSRA in 2015, and is now in full operation throughout the school year, focusing on basic English, reading, writing, and reading comprehension.


We are a volunteer staff of youth and adults who care about the English education of the refugee/immigrant children of Vickery Meadow, Dallas, TX.

The group of volunteers mostly consists of very sweet retired teachers and older college-aged teens that help elementary kids needing extra guidance in reading and writing. There is very kind atmosphere that helps you develop as a volunteer and by the end you'll grow fond of every child in the program.
