Our project is focused on rising first grade students and uses hands on mentoring and role modeling from teenagers in my Roots & Shoots group. The students’ overall literacy will be improved as we encourage the kids with guided and self-selected reading, writing and mastering new words. We are collaborating with our local YMCA to work with and identify the children, who will be from lower income/under-resourced populations and who are a full grade level behind in reading. Our approach will be multifaceted. Weekly we will work with the kids at the Y or at a local school. We will be teaching them through fun activities based on Dr. Goodall and her work. The reading and literacy skills will be built into the programs. Physical activities, STEM projects and art will be priorities as well in our mentoring process. We will film segments of the mentoring process and create a short film upon completion of the project at the end of summer 2015, reinforcing what the kids have learned as they also become "movie stars." We hope to follow these kids through grade 5 and document their success. In addition to mentoring this specific group of children, we mentor kids in other settings such as the library, schools and even girl scout troops. Our activities are all based on Dr. Goodall and her work. The kids love it!

We hope to bring the issue to light in the capital of our state. We want to have a march that will bring speakers, slam poetry, and music into the mix. Hopefully we can propose legislation that is reasonable, and will make a significant difference in our state. I am hoping to get a group of my friends from school together in order to create an event that has purpose.
