Read2Succeed's programs are designed to improve children's academic performance while helping reduce illiteracy rates in the communities we serve.
21st Century Community Learning Centers
We're proud to be part of 21st Century Community Learning Centers in partnership with the Florida Department of Education. The goal of 21CCLC is to enrich children's education with opportunities for continued learning during non-school hours. The program focuses on assisting students from low-performing schools and economically disadvantaged communities by providing additional instruction in reading, math, science and other core subjects essential to academic success. By complementing the regular-school day with targeted instruction, 21CCLC aspires to aid students in meeting or exceeding local and state standards.
Providing tools for success
Building equal opportunity
Read2Succeed has been a proud recipient of this program since 2009 serving over 100 students and their families throughout the academic school calendar year and nine weeks during summer. In 2012 we received a second grant to serve over 120 middle school students.

Please note that all 21st Century programs run by Read2Succeed are at NO COST to all eligible program participants.
Project Based Learning
Read2Succeed supports Project Based Learning (PBL) because of its forty years of accumulated evidence indicating effectiveness. The instructional strategies and procedures that make up PBL are instrumental in building deep content understanding, raising academic achievement and encouraging student motivation. A characteristic of quality programs is the use of research-based strategies. Common research-based techniques in quality programs included scaffolding techniques, "real world" approaches that incorporate relevant cultural and social experiences, active participation and "hands on" approaches.

Read2Succeed believes strongly in the use of data as a measuring tool to determine the success of our programs.
