Community Sites

Open to elementary children in Fresno County. Reading and Beyond operates community sites at churches and other locations in partnership with the Fresno Housing Authority and Boys and Girls Club. Typically, community sites operate two days per week and students focus on literacy and enrichment after school.

School Sites

Reading and Beyond operates morning literacy programs and runs comprehensive after-school programs at school sites. Reading and Beyond works with school administrators to build a program that meets the needs of their students.

Supplemental Educational Services (S.E.S.)

S.E.S. tutoring is offered during the spring for students in grades K-8, who attend qualified schools.  Students are tutored one-on-one or in small groups by staff, two times per week.  Reading And Beyond has operated this program in the school districts of Fresno, Madera, Kerman, Visalia, Central, Modesto, Coalinga/Huron, Mendota, Fowler, and West Park.

Reading And Beyond’s first program was the reading tutoring program for children who were struggling in school.  It’s common for children who enroll in the program to start five grade levels behind.  Our literacy intervention program is research-based and developed, using the best practices in the field.

The goal is for a child who is enrolled in the program, for six months or longer, to improve by at least one grade level in reading and comprehension.  To monitor their progress, each child’s reading level is assessed every ten weeks.

Our Literacy Intervention/After School Program operates in three different formats:
