Augustus F. Hawkins Literacy Centers and Afterschool Programs

 

NCEBC Literacy Center

The Augustus F. Hawkins Literacy Centers are being established in various cities to enhance the instruction provided by public and charter schools to those students who are classified as a high risk for academic failure. Because research indicates there is a high correlation between illiteracy and incarceration, these centers are being located in zip codes characterized by high crime, violence, low-socio-economics and households headed by single females. The centers carry out three goals:

  • To provide a personal library for each child enrolled.
  • The use culturally relevant teaching strategies, technology, and a curriculum that incorporates Black Boys’ rites of passage and girls’ empowerment.
  • To provide an opportunity to build more productive and successful relationships between parent, child, school, and community.

*For more information on the Augustus F. Hawkins Literacy Centers, please contact our National Office.
