Literacy: Community Foundation for Southeastern Michigan

Each year more than 450 local school children receive literacy tutoring from a corps of 150 University of Michigan students through the America Reads Program, supported by the Edward Ginsberg Center for Community Service and Learning. One of the Center’s many success stories, the America Reads Tutoring Program serves elementary schools in Detroit and Ypsilanti. The Community Foundation for Southeastern Michigan has partnered with the Ginsberg Center on this important program to bring U-M undergraduates into schools four days a week for tutoring, provide books and teaching materials, and host special literacy-related events.
