Making literacy accessible by incentivizing youth
About our literacy offerings
Legacy Family Center is committed to developing literacy in youth. We accomplish this by building skills in various mediums:
Traditional reading literacy
To build these skills, we've established the Youth Readers Program and a book distribution initiative. Read more about these literacy programs below.
About the Youth Readers Program
Literacy is critical for a child's development. That's why Legacy Family Center has created a program to incentivize children to read and to have youth read to them.
Under this program, youth aged 10-17 are paid an allowance to read books to younger listeners aged 2-9 in their home and community.
Both reading and listening improves a child's literacy skills. If your family is interested in being a reader or listener, click the buttons below.
About the book distribution program
Underserved communities lack the proper resources to build literacy. Legacy Family Center aims to fix this issue by making sure reading material is accessible and appropriate for certain age groups.
The books distribution program targets young children ages 0 to 12 years. Once a form is filled out, our staff will curate a variety of books and drop it off at the address provided.
