Peace Neighborhood Center

As a part of Peace Neighborhood Center's comprehensive Family Services, this Saturday marks the first Reading Champions program that will run on five Saturday mornings between now and December. This new program is designed to help educate parents and guardians on the best practices of reading with a purpose to their children. The state of Michigan has passed a law that requires students to be able to read by the third grade or they may be unable to advance in school. Many of the families that Peace Neighborhood Center serves struggle with this benchmark due to many factors – time being one of them. Offering a positive experience to introduce techniques designed to help young people absorb reading skills while engaged with adults in the home, this program comes with a delicious brunch to draw families to the event on Saturday mornings when most families are available to attend.

Thank you to our partners at Ann Arbor Public Schools, specifically Abbott, Dicken and Haisley Elementary Schools and our friends at the Ann Arbor Chapter of the LINKS for coming into read and lead training sessions. We look forward to a great semester!

What a great thing to do. That law seems a bit arbitrary to me and can hurt some people a lot.

Great idea!!!

The Peace Center is like a home away from home. It really is special, both in the summer and during after school programs. This place feels like it is our roots. Even as you grow, you still are with your roots.
