Central Detroit Christian Community Development Corporation


This grant will support Central Detroit Christian Community Development Corporation to engage a minimum of 100 students, K-4, in the pilot implementation of its “Kids Read” intervention program within CDC’s six-week summer camp. “Kids Read” focuses on core instructional strategies like vocabulary development, reading comprehension, fluency, oral-language development, and written expression through a volunteer-driven, 1-1 model of engagement. In partnership with six other summer literacy partners, CDC will share learnings and recommendations aimed to improve practice and outcomes with the broader field of summer programming partners to reduce summer learning loss.

This grant is part of The Skillman Foundation’s 2019 Summer Literacy Request for Proposals.
