Beyond Basics is a wonderful organization that is committed to meeting the needs of the whole child. Through their literacy programming the organization not only raises students' educational proficiency, but also increases their self value and desire to succeed. The students experience quality one-on-one interactions with staff and volunteers which leads to a high impact on student achievement and the overall success of the program.
Beyond Basics' dedication to the children it serves is unmatched. There is something magical happening between the organization, including the many volunteers and partners, the community in the city of Detroit, and the surrounding area. The African proverb "It takes a village to raise a child" is in full motion here and is driven by the amazing work of Beyond Basics.
What beyond basics has done for me is incredible. It is a truly humbling experience to work along side such great mentors to help achieve such a wonderful goal.
Beyond Basics is a wonderful organization! The programs are helpful and inspiring for the kids in the communities and schools Beyond Basics serves. I think it is a great organization that helps kids read in 6 to 10 weeks! Literacy is important to be successful. Beyond Basics puts words into actions by changing the future of the kids they help!
I have recently become aware of Beyond Basics and am so impressed with the mission of the organization. They truly do what they say they'll do - get kids reading at grade level in as little as six weeks! As an avid reader myself, I can't imagine a world without books being an open door. Wonderful organization!
Beyond Basics does for children what few or no other program does. It identifies children who do not read at their grade level and it works with these students to eliminate this gap. This, in turn, allows kids who go through Beyond Basics' programs to follow along at their grade level. This makes a huge difference in their ability to follow along and do well in school and in their future academic success. There is no better way to invest in the lives' of children. I highly recommend this organization.
It is an Honor to be apart of supporting Pam Good and her incredible team at Beyond Basics. This program has proven results of getting students to read at their grade level within 6 weeks. In addition, the Publishing Center bounds books from the students original stories. How powerful to have students see their own stories in a book form. It is inspiring when you observe these students in Beyond Basics classrooms learning to read on-on-one with a tutor.These children are our future, learning to read is essential for their future.
