On April 30, 2015, Generations Incorporated will host its seventh annual Between the Lines fundraising event.
Our featured speaker is Ralph Smith, the Managing Director of the Campaign for Grade Level Reading. We have been fortunate to be involved in this campaign in Massachusetts and it is because of this campaign that we made the strategic decision to focus on the earliest grades in order to boost literacy skills among young children.
The Campaign for Grade Level Reading is a collaborative effort of funders, nonprofit partners, business leaders, government agencies, states and communities across the nation to ensure that many more children from low-income families succeed in school and graduate prepared for college, a career and active citizenship. Currently, more than 30 states have adopted the campaign
Reading at an early age is too important to not warrant our attention. Failure to teach a kid to read consigns him or her to a life of hardship.
This is an occasion for our supporters, donors and stakeholders to come together and close the gap.
And Generations Incorporated is committed to closing the gap…
And that’s why on April 30th we invite you to join us as we celebrate for the Campaign here in Boston.
