The Houston Area Urban League and HAULYP are partnering with the Barbara Bush Houston Literacy Foundation for their first annual Summer Reading Camps. The reading camps will be held at 3 different communities in the Houston Area this May.  The goal of each camp is to engage students and their parents in the literacy process over the summer months.  Did you know that most students lose about two months of grade level equivalency in mathematical computation skills over the summer months? Low-income students also lose more than two months in reading achievement, despite the fact that their middle-class peers make slight gains.

Before the camps this summer HAUL, HAULYP & the BBHLF will go into these communities and educate the parents on the importance of engaging their children in reading over the summer while gauging the current literacy levels of the students in the neighborhoods.  Over the next few weeks, HAUL will be conducting training sessions and visits to the communities.  For more information, please reach out to Jasmine Turner, vicepresident@haulyp,org.
