62% of Virginia's 4th graders are below proficiency in reading. By 8th grade, it's 67%.
Low literacy ability is related to underemployment, homelessness, and incarceration. 360 Citizens wants to change those numbers. We are helping our local Hampton Roads community understand literacy better, providing effective interventions to help students read and comprehend at grade level, and seeking to close gaps in workforce development. 360 Citizens uses literacy as a foundation to ensure that our youth have the skills they need to actively engage in learning, care for themselves and others, and function as economically secure community members.
