A dire economic future faces the vast majority of Trenton’s children. While the causes are many and complex, there is a life-altering remedy, and that is what The Trenton Literacy Movement, Inc., (TTLM) is all about. Reading is a foundational skill for learning after 3rd grade and a predictor for future success. TTLM is a non-profit organization dedicated to enabling Trenton school children to read at grade level by 3rd grade.
The Trenton Literacy Movement and Reading is Fundamental (RIF) teamed up with Trenton Starbucks Community Store employees to assemble and deliver 100 literacy kits to the students of Clara Parker Elementary, a public school in Trenton. RIF’s literacy kits provide new books and reading resources for children to take home and own, building their home libraries and creating a life-long love of reading.

Over 30 computers were given to students at Wilson Elementary School who successfully completed the Lexia® Core5® After-School Program. TTLM, in partnership with the Trenton Digital Initiative (TDI) and their volunteers, worked together to make this a reality.
