Reading, Writing, and Rewards Program

In collaboration with Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc., Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc., Lexington (KY) Alumnae chapter members volunteer every Thursday with about 30 fourth- and fifth-graders at William Wells Brown Elementary, assisting children with their reading and writing skills.

For each book read and each summary written and corrected, the student scores points. With the points, the students can purchase prizes. Plus, they get to keep the books they read.  At the end of the year, the students and their parents are taken on a field trip. Previous years' trips have included Newport Aquarium and the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center in Cincinnati.
