WAMU reporter Sasha-Ann Simons reported on the tremendous leaps in reading that Latino youth enrolled in Identity’s elementary school reading and social-emotional program are making.

Did you know that students enrolled in Identity’s Jóvenes del Mañana program made big strides with 45% reaching or surpassing their on-grade-level reading and 52% making gains toward this goal, while also building self-control, persistence, and social competence?  The program is now serving students at Clopper Mill, Daly, Stedwick and  Whetstone Elementary Schools.
