Mission:
We believe that when given a chance, students in special education can succeed in school. But today in Oregon, nearly two-thirds of these promising youngsters don't graduate with their class. From a very early age, children with learning disabilities disengage from school due to shame, persistent failure, and classrooms unequipped to help them persevere in the profound daily challenge of reading and writing. The Shadow Project seeks to change their life trajectory. We team with teachers to reach kids who see themselves as "stupid" and help them become confident, engaged learners who feel like they belong in school.
Results:
The Shadow Project is a Portland-based nonprofit that leverages the existing education system to deliver a cost-effective, high impact program to special education classrooms that has helped more than 6,500 at-risk students build habits for success. In the past year, students in our program, past and present, have graduated from college, met state benchmarks for reading for the first time, and even placed in the state chess championships!

Some of the huge successes are: turning a complete non-reader into a recreational reader, encouraging kids to attend school, helping ... more »
