The Young Readers, administered by the LULAC National Educational Service Centers, encourages children to make reading a life-long habit. At each site, thirty first, second and third graders meet weekly for six weeks during the summer with a reading teacher in a program designed to make reading fun. Reading sessions are enhanced by trips to the movie theater, the museum and the newspaper printing press. Games, treats and prizes help turn an educational experience into a fun summertime activity kids look forward to week after week.
LNESC has implemented the Young Readers program in over 20 cities.
