The Palacios Community Hub works with the Palacios Community Medical Clinic & MEHOP to support our local Reach Out Read program. Reach Out and Read is an evidence-based nonprofit organization of medical providers who promote early literacy and school readiness in pediatric exam rooms nationwide by giving new books to children and advice to parents about the importance of reading aloud.
As a partner in the Rural Literacy Coalition the Palacios Community Hub supports pre-kindergarten readiness activities to ensure that all students start kindergarten ready to learn. We were proud to be part of the finalist team for the All American City Award.
The Campaign is a collaborative effort by foundations, nonprofit partners, business leaders, government agencies, states and communities across the nation to ensure that more children in low-income families succeed in school and graduate prepared for college, a career, and active citizenship. The Campaign focuses on an important predictor of school success and high school graduation—grade-level reading by the end of third grade.
The Palacios Community Hub partners with PBS Kids and distributes educations apps and provides training for teachers and pre-school. Ready To Learn is an effective children’s media program targeted toward America’s most at-risk kids, but made available to all families and children across the country, Ready To Learn’s high-quality transmedia content is unparalleled in its impact, value and necessity. The math- and literacy-based educational programming created by Ready To Learn provides families with effective, non-commercial content that helps prepare kids for success in school.
