The Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Fort Worth, Girls Inc. of Tarrant County, Fort Worth ISD, United Way of Tarrant County, the City of Fort Worth and other organizations have aligned efforts to offer a free, six-week summer enrichment program June 12 – July 24 to help children in a targeted area where third-grade reading achievement is historically low.
The 2017 pilot program will serve students from Maude Logan, Maudrie Walton and Sunrise McMillan elementary schools. Literacy classes are led by Girls Inc. instructors and offered at two Boys & Girls Club sites in the Historic Stop Six neighborhood.
To kick off the program Clifford, the big red dog, showed up with tons of free books! The children’s reactions are heartwarming!
