Midlands Reading Consortium: Help Students Succeed

The Midlands Reading Consortium (MRC) is a volunteer tutoring initiative targeting pre-kindergarten through third-grade students. In South Carolina, 39% of fourth graders aren't reading on grade level -- these children are four times more likely to drop out of high school. Spending 30 minutes a week reading to a child can make all the difference in the world.
