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.
Read Aloud With Us!
For children, parents, guardians, and teachers!
Read Aloud is a unique virtual reading initiative exposing early readers to books.
In our latest series, we launch into literacy with Astronaut Greg Olsen. Before Bronson or Bezos, Dr. Olsen went into space on a trip to the International Space Station.
Another series is presented in partnership with TTLM, Trenton Kappa Foundation, and C.I.E.E. Productions.
Have you read our Spring newsletter? In this issue, we highlight the success of the children in our program. We also pay special tribute to our dedicated first-line workers, our teachers. Without them, we could not make the progress that our children so richly deserve. In addition, we introduce our new Education Committee charged with providing additional resources and incentives to support our mission and achieve the highest level of educational outcomes.
