Since 1942, United Way of Northern Nevada and the Sierra (UWNNS) strives to link the community’s will and resources to improve lives. Beginning in 2014, UWNNS identified a key need to address early childhood literacy and focused their primary efforts towards it. The Education and Curriculum Coordinator VISTA serves to enhance the implementation of UWNNS’s United Readers program and Community Impact initiatives. These programs are focused on children ages zero to five preparing for school, as well as kindergarten through third grade children. The VISTA will accumulate educational resources, data, and implement tracking systems to ensure the programs start with the utmost effectiveness and longevity. These programs will ensure children are better equipped to be at grade level reading proficiency. Children’s proficiency in reading by third grade has a strong correlation to high school graduation rates, which is a key factor in quality of life and the cycle of poverty.
