URBAN LITERACY PROJECT IMPACT

Urban Literacy Project Impact Is really monumental as it works daily to increase literacy in those underserved communities. Our mentoring program works with the youth to help them get a grasp on self worth and self esteem. We help the youth to develop good routines around respect and success. We also work to train our mentees to give back to their communities and become an asset not a liability. Partnerships …Currently Urban Literacy Project has community partnerships with Microsoft, 100 Black Men Of The Inland Empire, Jack and Jill Pomona Area Chapter, Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority Inc. Gamma Tau Sigma Chapter, and Riverside Unified School District to name a few. We are accepting other partners who share our vision and mission of working with the youth in our communities.

National Buy A KID A Book Day was created to bring attention to the lack of emphasis in so many struggling inner-city communities to rebuld literacy amongst our children. This day will give anyone an opportunity to buy a child a book. Many schools are experiencing a high number of students that drop out because of poor grades and low reading skills.
We would like to eventually make this a nationally and internationally recognized day as well as extend it to National Buy A KID A Book Week and National Buy A KID A Book Month. The Urban Literacy Project, Inc. is a newly formed California non-profit organization that will launched the National Buy A KID A Book Program.
