The Adolescent Literacy Program is an after school reading and writing program in ten public middle schools. It uses a range of educational approaches to help struggling 6th, 7th, and 8th graders develop their reading, writing, and public speaking skills.

Program staff work closely with the school teachers and principals to identify children whose test scores and classroom work show a need for assistance with reading, writing and speaking English.
