The Wake Promise is made up of leaders and community partners who “grow their own” by creating and strengthening educational opportunities for economically disadvantaged students. Together they work to ensure that youth achieve a postsecondary credential and living-wage employment to build a stronger and more prosperous Wake County.
To encourage reading among youth, the NC State College of Education's Literacy and Community Initiative has created a list of recommended reads for middle school and high school students.
Student authors from three community-based organization partners celebrate the release of two new books.
The Literacy and Community Initiative (LCI) investigates and promotes the power of voice among historically underserved students by supporting literacy learning in educational community-based organizations. Hear student-authors read excerpts from their published books at LCI’s Inaugural Reading Celebration.
