2021-22 Literacy Coordinator-Whitewater LEADS
Whitewater LEADS supports literacy programming within the Hispanic community throughout the school district. The focus on this demographic is supported by the data showing the Hispanic population in Wisconsin falls below the poverty level at 22.78 percent and literacy is a substantial factor when addressing poverty alleviation. The overall goal is increasing the literacy programming and resources of this initiative by engaging in coordinated efforts to gather information on the educational needs of Latino students while providing their families with information on literacy resources. Co-develop and support programs that increase educational attainment among Latino students. Assist immigrant families in the acculturation process. Serve Wisconsin manages the initiative that engages AmeriCorps VISTA members to address poverty related to racial disparity throughout the state of Wisconsin by focusing on building the economic opportunity for the communities of Black, Hispanic/Latino, Asian, and Native American.
