Boys & Girls Clubs of San Antonio
San Antonio Youth Literacy (SAYL), Boys & Girls Clubs of San Antonio (BGCSA) and SA Youth have combined forces to execute Super Summer Readers for 500 rising 3rd, rising 4th, and rising 5th grade students to participate in the Super Summer Readers pilot program. Although all three agencies have different missions, they are uniquely aligned in supporting academic success for low income children in San Antonio.
This 10-‐week program will provide the students with a designated reading time for one hour a day, three days a week, consisting of 30 minutes of paired reading and 30 minutes of reading extension
activities. During this time trained volunteer “Reading Sidekicks” with work with students to provide them with reading support. Students will be provided with eight books to read over the summer with the support of their Reading Sidekicks that will be appropriate to the students’
reading level. The pilot program will begin on June 4, 2018 and end on August 10, 2018.
