Drawing upon its current success in connecting the classroom, campus and community, the Center for Service and Community Engagement (CSCE) provides a natural hub for the overall organization and implementation of the Youth Initiative. The centralized approach will make it easier to coordinate a rigorous assessment of the Initiative’s and pursue a thoughtful and coordinated fund development plan.
In order to strengthen the University’s ability to facilitate and implement an effective Initiative, the Children’s Literacy Project (CLP) has merged with CSCE. Previously housed within the College of Education, CLP has a long history of mobilizing undergraduates to serve as tutors and academic mentors in local elementary and middle schools including Bailey Gatzert Elementary School and Washington Middle School. CSCE also currently operates academic support programs for pre-school and high school students. Merging CLP with CSCE significantly enhances the University’s ability to efficiently and effectively offer high quality academic assistance and mentoring to children in Pre-K through high school providing a continuous pipeline of school based support.
