Kids on Campus Day at AU

Since 1996, AU's DC Reads program has affected literacy across the District of Columbia. Currently, it reaches some 650 local children by sending over 100 AU student tutors to teach reading, writing, and math in communities throughout DC. Each tutor commits six hours per week to afternoon academic support at local schools, community centers, and homeless shelters. Each year, DC Reads logs thousands of quality service hours with the students it reaches. Last year, Kids on Campus Day hosted over 100 area youth and 40 tutors for several activities, which ranged from a campus tour to dinner at the Terrace Dining Room. Local authors Paula Shelton and Tony Medina read from their material and engaged with students on the power and importance of literacy, education, and perseverance. KIds on Campus Day is an amazing opportunity for kids to experience life on on a college campus, and a great opportunity to foster their drive to learn.
