The mission of EW!DC is to pair students with Reading Mentors to instill a love of reading and learning and foster a sense of self-esteem. The ideas behind our mission remain simple and straightforward, yet can bring about profound change in the lives of young students: expose children to literature, give them a positive role model, inspire them to read and you will make a difference in their lives. The EW!DC model targets underserved children through three programs:


  • The Power Lunch program, which operates in 11 Title I Public Elementary schools, links eager young minds with caring adults, who give an hour of their time each week to read and talk with children over lunch. Power Lunch is based on the belief that the single most important activity for building the knowledge required for eventual success in reading is reading aloud to children.
  • Modeled after the Power Lunch program, Readers Are Leaders matches older students with younger students to read aloud together, one-on-one, during the lunch hour. By pairing older students with younger students, the Readers Are Leaders program creates a unique peer mentoring relationship that benefits both readers. This program operates in 9 Title 1 Public Elementary school currently.
  • StoryTime brings storytellers to 19 Title I public elementary schools. Once a month, storytellers, local authors and other performers visit the schools to share the joy and magic of storytelling with children in first through third grades.
