Books for Charity’s goal is to provide free educational tutoring services to the Appalachian community and its children.

In the heart of the Appalachian Region of Virginia, Books for Charity serves the poorest and underserved populations in America. Schools are often under funded because of the low-income levels in the area. This translates into a lack of basic supplies in schools.

Books for Charity’s Literacy and Education Program focuses upon basic reading skills for children, plus writing competencies and math skills expected in today’s world. Without these competencies, adults are restricted to low-level, low skill jobs increasingly unavailable in these modern times because of advances in modern technology.

A child’s educational success starts at home. Illiteracy is a cycle. Books for Charity’s program specifically targets at risk children and families to help break the cycle of poverty and illiteracy.


Literacy and Education Program Provides Tutoring for Core Competencies

Books for Charity works directly with each school in Lee County, Virginia, as well as other counties in the Appalachian area to provide tutoring in the following core competencies:

· Reading
Any educational competency begins with strong reading skills and comprehension. Books for Charity works with every teacher in each of the county schools to refer children who are still lagging on their reading skills for tutoring.
· Writing
Children need to be up to par on their writing skills in order to be able to be competitive in today’s job market. Skills such as sentence and paragraph construction, grammar, spelling, letter writing, and even paper writing will be supported with our tutoring program.
· Arithmetic
Basic arithmetic skills are needed for any job today, and are useful for daily living. Basic math skills are needed to understand any science, such as physics, which is based on calculus. Books for Charity provides tutoring help for students for levels K-12.

Assessment Services Are Provided for Free to Qualified Children and Families

Some children need more in order to receive a quality education. The areas where they are having trouble need to be assessed by a qualified individual, someone with the experience and training to use assessment tools to pinpoint a student’s problem. For instance, a child with dyslexia will not be helped with traditional educational methods.

A core service of Books for Charity’s Literacy and Education Program is free skills assessment for children who qualify for free services for Books for Charity’s Literacy and Educational Program. These assessments can sometimes cost hundreds of dollars.

Free assessments to low-income families mean increasing the child’s chances of academic success.
