Mission Statement

The mission of the Vickery Meadow Summer Reading Academy 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.


We are a volunteer staff of youth and adults

who care about the English education of the

children of Vickery Meadow,Dallas,TX.

Would you recommend Vickery Meadow Summer Reading Academy?

by Gabriela G. (May 13, 2014)
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.
